[mapserver-dev] Insert an 'INCLUDE' somewhere in a mapfile using the c/c++ ms API

If you've already parsed the mapfile then it's too late to use includes and you should modify the mapObj, etc... directly. Otherwise you'd need to modify the file itself (outside of MapServer), perhaps by reading the file as plain text and writing a temp file with your include that can be handed to MapServer. --Steve

Subject: [mapserver-dev] Insert an 'INCLUDE' somewhere in a mapfile using the c/c++ ms API

Hello everybody,

I am producing mapfiles using the mapserver API from a C/C++ code of mine.

I am trying to insert an INCLUDE "my_mapfile.map" somewhere inside a 
mapfile, using the c/c++ mapserver API. Ideally, I want to put this line 
inside a given myLayer. I did not find a dedicated function to perform 
this, and I was expecting if there is a (simple?) way to reach this goal?

Many thanks,
