GPSBabel Behavior Directives

There are a few available directives to control some of the internal processing functions of GPSbabel.

SHORTLEN

This sets the maximum allowed shortname length when using the internal shortname synthesizer.

example:

   SHORTLEN	16	# shortnames will be at most 16 characters long.

SHORTWHITE

This tells the shortname synthesizer whether or not to allow whitespace in the synthesized shortnames. Allowed values are zero and one.

example:

   SHORTWHITE	0	# Do not allow whitespace in shortname.
   SHORTWHITE   1	# Allow whitespace in shortname.
