rfe r.in.gdal: auto-calc memory= value
|Reported by:||hamish||Owned by:|
Hi, a r.in.gdal wish refined with hints from EvenR,
it would be nice if the r.in.gdal memory= option allowed the user to specify memory=auto, in which case the value was automatically calculated from "tile_height * raster_width * band_count * sizeof_datatype" rounded up to the next megabyte or so for good luck.
This will require changing the parser check to manual testing, but that shouldn't be too difficult. The default should remain at the current gdal-internal 40MB for low-resource users who want to import very large files.
for now I've put a hint in the wiki:
thanks, Hamish (back soon)
