I am trying to write a module to convert to satmap's .map format, but I'm getting a bit stuck...
.map file seems to be a zip file that carries the name of the route.
The zip archive within the file contains the file S1nclair Rul3z.txt,
which is the route information itself. It seems to me that if I could
write a module to convert to the the file format in S1nclair Rul3z then
it would be an easy matter to zip it, rename it and use it. But...
S1nclair bit doesn't seem to operate in the way that the markup wants -
the points are not just separated by a character - they are each
contained in brackets < >, and the individual items are all
preceded by names. And I'm not entirely sure how the figures for the
lat and lon are derived.
I would really appreciated being
pointed in the right direction, if anyone can help. Here is an extract from the unzipped file...
