#3256 closed defect (fixed)

[OGR-BNA]: the driver outputs incorrect line endings on Windows.

Reported by: ash Owned by: Even Rouault
Priority: normal Milestone:
Component: OGR_SF Version: 1.6.2
Severity: major Keywords: BNA


OGR BNA driver writes incorrect line endings on Windows, probably due to specific behavior of fpintf. Here's the relevant code from OGRBNALayer::CreateFeature?():

    if (poDS->GetUseCRLF())
	// this branch will get executed on windows
        eol[0] = 13; // this will result in CR
        eol[1] = 10; // this will result in CRLF
        eol[2] = 0;
        eol[0] = 10;
        eol[1] = 0;

Compiled using VC 2003, tested on Windows XP SP2.

I'm afraid I am not clear on what problem you are seeing. Is the driver writing out CRCRLF or something like that? A brief inspection of the driver suggests that the output file is being opened in binary mode in ogrbnalayer.cpp with VSIFOpen(), and so I would not expected any automatic conversion of \n to CRLF.

Frank, indeed, the problem is in the autoconversion of the newline char, because the output file is being opened in the text mode in OGRBNADataSource::Create():

  fpOutput = VSIFOpen( pszFilename, "w" );

Changing the mode to binary fixes the problem.

Gotcha, turning over to Even since this appears to be his driver and me may be aware of any special circumstances.

Andrey, thanks for spotting this.

Frank, no special circumstances in fact. The driver was just developped & tested on Linux where binary mode is the default...

Fixed in trunk (r18139) and in branches/1.6 (r18140). Test added in r18141
