Could you look into this in the next few days? You will need to coordinate upstream changes with Daniel.

I am able to reproduce this with the avcimport program.

It turns out that the file is a 'compressed' E00. After uncompressing it with the e00conv program ( I am able to read it with the avcimport program.

I see two solutions to this:

1- Detect compressed E00 files and ether refuse to open them, or give a friendly error message to the users pointing them at the e00conv utility to uncompress the file. I'll check if there is an easy way we could detect compressed files when we open them.

2- Add support for reading compressed files... may require the creation of a temporary file in order to support seeking around the E00 file. If the access to the E00 file was only sequential then the decompression could possibly be done on the fly without going through a temp file.

I think option (1) - erroring out with explanatory text - would be just fine.

Crashing... not so much so.

comment:4 Changed 12 years ago by Daniel Morissette

Resolution: fixed
Status: newclosed

Fixed in r15077. Now OGR simply refuses to open the file... but unfortunately without any warning or error to the user because the test-open phase hides all errors.

Comment copied from

I have committed a change to _AVCE00ReadScanE00() (avc_e00read.c) to detect compressed input and stop scanning right away, which will result in AVCE00ReadOpenE00() returning NULL as if the file was not recognized.
