Shape Index-Files (*.qix) not used when .shp extension is specified in mapfile
The Index-files (*.qix) of ESRI-Shape-Files are never used.
This behaviour has been verified using File-Auditing in W2000
and has been observed for the builds
php_mapscript_40.dll from 8/5/2003
php_mapscript_41.dll from 3/3/2004
(other builds have not been checked)
The only file-types accessed are the 3 standard-files (*.shx, *.shp, *.dbf)
I was wondering, why it maked never a difference (with respect to map-rendering
time) wether qix-files are present or not.
