[mkgmap-dev] Option handling with polish input (*.mp)?

From Gerd Petermann GPetermann_muenchen at hotmail.com on Tue Feb 12 14:53:59 GMT 2019


with OSM data we provide options like family id, mapname etc. as program arguments.
In *.mp files many of these options can be specified in the so called "IMG ID" section.
In the past the polish reader in mkgmap didn't evaluate most of these parameters, there 
was no intention to replace the functionality of cGPSmapper. Now I learned about tools that
create *.mp files as output and that mkgmap might be the better choice to process those files.

So far so good. Problem: What is expected when the mkgmap options conflict with those in the 
*.mp file? 
My current understanding is this:
1) *.mp overwrites mkgmap builtin defaults
2) mkgmap options overwrite *.mp information

Would that work?
