gdaltindex crashing on win32

Reported by: warmerdam Owned by: warmerdam
Priority: high Milestone: 1.5.1
Component: Utilities Version: 1.5.0 betas/RCs
Severity: normal Keywords: shape gdaltindex


FWTools 2.0.3 build of gdaltindex for win32 (approximately 1.5.0beta2) crashes on fairly straightforward operations. A traceback shows it is in VSI_SHP_Write() so there is reason to suspect the new hook functions.

Milestone: 1.5.1

The problem seems to be the direct compilation of dbfopen.c and shpopen.c into gdaltindex.exe in the gdal/apps/ I have removed this (r13397 in trunk) and things seem to be fixed.

I conclude that the GDAL 1.5.0RC1 source will always produce broken gdaltindex executables on win32 platforms. This problem does not exist in earlier GDALs (except perhaps beta1/beta2). The problem does not affect other use of the OGR shapefile driver. Likely gdaltindex ought to be rewritten to use OGR instead of direct shapelib calls.

Also applied to 1.5 branch as r13398.
