[mkgmap-dev] missing check for option --family-id

From Randolph J. Herber army.bronze.star at gmail.com on Tue Apr 7 14:07:50 BST 2020


I am not sure about the lower limit of 1. Zero may be acceptable. The 
upper limit should be checked for as some Garmin receivers have problems 
with file names\ prefixes longer than eight characters, which comes from 
the old MSDOS FAT limit of 8 character prefix and 3 character suffix 
file name format.
