#6298 closed defect (fixed)

MapInfo: handling of .map files with block size != 512

Reported by: Even Rouault Owned by: Even Rouault
Priority: normal Milestone: 2.0.2
Component: OGR_SF Version: unspecified
Severity: normal Keywords: mitab


Currently the MITAB driver has 512 hardcoded as the block size of .map files in a lot of places. The block size is one filed of the header block of .map files. Before MapInfo 15.2, it was always 512 but starting with 15.2 it is now 16384. This causes MITAB to most of the time error out when reading coordinate blocks, but sometimes it can also silently read wrong coordinates.
