Ticket #1414 (closed defect: fixed)
world files and locale
|Reported by:||warmerdam||Owned by:||warmerdam|
Description (last modified by warmerdam) (diff)
When operating in the C locale, GDAL cannot read world files using commas in place of a period as the decimal point (ie. typical of the "de" locale for instance).
Please modify the worldfile reading code to support either "." or "," as the decimal place regardless of the working locale. Basically, use the CPLAtof() function in place of atof().
(see GDALReadWorldFile() in gdal/gcore/gdal_misc.cpp)
Make sure a test of this is added to the test suite.
