It looks that I made a mistake. My original .prj file was a single long line.
Than I looked at the output of gdalinfo and tested if a multiple line format
.prj still worked in creating a Geotiff, and it did.
My idea was to try to use the gdalinfo output to write a .prj file, but it looks
that this might work with some formats but not all. Hence my question on what
are the allowed/mandatory contents of a .prj file

Thanks again
