Ticket #3161 (closed enhancement: fixed)
Enhancements proposal for gdal_merge.py
|Reported by:||pedera||Owned by:||chaitanya|
|Severity:||normal||Keywords:||python module, progress option, version info|
1. Made gdal_merge into a module: it can be imported and executed directly from python code. It can still be used as a command line, of course.
2. Added an option -progress that will present unobtrusive feedback on the progress. It counts down the number of files left to merge.
3. Added a global version variable, now that gdal_merge also is a library. The value should be set by the versioning system using '$id$'[5:-1], maybe this should be done differently?
