Description

On Russian locale under Ubuntu 14.04 the MapInfo File Driver read geometry from MIF/MID files rounding all coordinates.

The driver stores all doubles in C locale with dot. And Russian locale use comma. I can use setlocale(LC_NUMERIC, "C") but GDAL have nice CPLAtofM method for such cases.

MIF/MID files should no be localized. It always uses . as decimal point.

Replying to uffek:

MIF/MID files should no be localized. It always uses . as decimal point.

I not said about format MIF/MID - but said about gdal driver, which have such error. If I have corrected input MIF/MID file with dots, and OGRGeometry will return rounded values, because my locale is Russian.
