I think 361 & 740 are asking for the same thing (see below). Although 740 wants the ability to do it for a specific region. OK by me (361 was mine).
In response to nohal's comment on 740, yes, that is kinda how it is supposed to work
, but it only ingests as many as it can before it times out. So, you have to run it over and over if you have many ENCs. I finally gave up trying to get it to finish mine last time I tried (many months ago, so someone correct me if that has changed
To recap for those who don't want to go read the links above:
Batch "ingest" for ENC charts
I would be fine with even a command line to allow batch ingest of all ENC
charts in a directory or directory structure.
This would allow for disk space planning, as well as speeding up scrolling around.
I'd like to be able to run a script that would pre-digest charts for a given place and zoom level, or region.
Already possible to some extent with the -unit_test_1 command line switch (see Troubleshooting | Official OpenCPN Homepage
). If you organize your charts to a folder structure that reflects your needs, it will do pretty much exactly what you ask for.
