#6355 closed enhancement (wontfix)
Allow VSI filesystem access for data files.
|Reported by:||Kurt Schwehr||Owned by:||Kurt Schwehr|
Another Googler and I are working on a patch to allow GDAL_DATA to be from a VSI filesystem. For example:
CPLPushFinderLocation( "/vsimem/GDAL_DATA/" );
This will make sandboxing GDAL easier and make systems easier where the GDAL_DATA files have to be written to a filesystem somewhere on startup.
This will be changes like VSIFRead -> VSIFReadL for the main gdal code, but we have not figured out how to properly handle the libgeotiff code. We could use some suggestion for libgeotiff.
I will post some of the patches for discussion before committing anything.
