#7229 closed defect (wontfix)

gdal.TranslateOptions ignores `-of` format args

Reported by: cdestigter Owned by: warmerdam
Priority: normal Milestone: closed_because_of_github_migration
Component: default Version: svn-trunk
Severity: normal Keywords:


gdal.TranslateOptions appears to silently ignore the -of option given in an array of option strings.

from osgeo import gdal

src_ds = gdal.OpenEx(b'src.tif', gdal.OF_RASTER | gdal.OF_VERBOSE_ERROR | gdal.OF_READONLY)
gdal.Translate(b'out.jp2', src_ds, options=gdal.TranslateOptions([b'-of', b'JP2KAK'])
Error: Failed to load processor shell
No macro or processor named 'shell' found

Interestingly if I pass ["-of", "FROGS"] it _does_ throw an error, so I guess it's validating the option and then ignoring it.

A workaround is to use format kwarg instead, i.e gdal.TranslateOptions([...], format='JP2KAK')

tested on our fork at 86d28efb which is a few months behind upstream trunk, though I can't see any relevant-looking commits in the upstream log.

That works for me with trunk and Python 2.7 and Python 3.5

(Forget my deleted comment about PNG, where I forgot to save my modified script... If i change to PNG, that generates a PNG). So status is : works for me

Thanks Even. I'll update us to upstream trunk and see if I can replicate it there.
