Missing libLAS utilities

Description

Comparing http://www.liblas.org/utilities/ to the commands available in OSGeo4W x64, I find these command-line utilities are missing:

  • lasmerge
  • lasdiff
  • las2tindex

Here is the version info from lasinfo:

libLAS 1.8.0 with GeoTIFF 1.4.0 GDAL 1.11.0 LASzip 2.2.0

Did these utilities even/ever work? I removed lasmerge and lasdiff as part of the 1.8.0 release because they were broken ports of (now open source) LASlib.

Was las2tindex ever available and working? I think the docs might just be bad on that one.

I'm not sure if they ever existed or worked, but assumed they were part of libLAS as they are listed in the utility docs. I was looking for lasmerge and naturally was looking here because it was included with the docs.

Reading this, I get a better understanding of how the LAStools utilities are no longer command-line compatible. I'll work with LAStools outside of OSGeo4W instead.
