I'm in need of some advice in modifying the v.in.ascii code in order to
correctly import some vector ascii files produced by the Trimble Ltd.
The format produced by Pfinder has an error; the coordinates come out
easting - northing instead of the northing - easting that v.in.ascii
requires. All other parts of the Pfinder produced ascii vector file
I have heard that a simple adjustment of the v.in.ascii code (and
recompilation) can result in a version of v.in.ascii that will correctly
output a binary file from the flip-flopped coordinates. I have a message
in the my NPS counterpart that I heard this from, but am in need of a fast
response, and will GLADLY accept any advise that can be offered.
I have thought of trying an AWK script, but the structure of the ascii
vector file has the columns interrupted by line/area definitions and
number of vertices information, making a `simple' solution difficult.
