#1626 closed defect (fixed)

cannot overwrite existing vector with r.contour

Reported by: cmbarton Owned by: grass-dev@…
Priority: normal Milestone: 7.0.0
Component: Database Version: svn-trunk
Keywords: r.contour, sqlite Cc:
CPU: Unspecified Platform: Unspecified


Even if the --overwrite flag is set, attempting to overwrite an existing file with r.contour gives an SQLite error.

GRASS 7.0.svn (Global_latlon):~ > r.contour --overwrite input=CCSM4_1000may.currspeed@paleoclimate_currents output=CCSM4_1000may_currspeed step=4
DBMI-SQLite driver error:
Error in sqlite3_prepare():
table CCSM4_1000may_currspeed already exists

ERROR: Unable to create table: 'create table CCSM4_1000may_currspeed ( cat
       integer, level double precision )'

I haven't tested it, but this may be more widespread and affect any attempt to overwrite an existing vector file.

I'm not getting this error with current trunk (GRASS 7, r59147) on Ubuntu 12.04. I know currently only about #2172 (g.remove takes too long to remove vector on Windows) which influences also removal of old vector map.

Tested again, overwrite works. Closing, feel free to reopen if needed.
