gdaltindex shapefile creation

Reported by: Mike Taves Owned by: warmerdam
Priority: normal Milestone: 1.7.0
Component: Utilities Version: 1.6.0
Severity: minor Keywords:


When gdaltindex is used to create a new shapefile, an error is always displayed, for example:

> gdaltindex ind.shp *.dem
ERROR 4: Unable to open ind.shp or ind.SHP.
Creating new index file...

This is not an error, but simply a message or notice, and should be changed to something less fatal sounding. A real error is if the shapefile cannot be opened or created.

Fair enough. Corrected in trunk in r16098 to avoid the error message when the shapefile doesn't exist.
