Merging earth_fix or earth_nav files


Recommended Posts

Does anyone know of a tool that would permit merging customized files with updated versions from x-plane? (I have added fixes, ILSs, etc., for local airports not considered worthy of inclusion in the "master" files). Thanks.

They're just text files, so if you already have lines of the right format, a simple script to do search and replace wouldn't be too hard to put together.

 

I wonder if just sticking the lines at the end of the file would override them in memory as the file is read, actually. Try that? Would be a pretty easy system—just keep the original and the overrides in separate files, and cat the overrides onto the end of the original, putting the result in a third file to merge them.

Thanks for the suggestions. Not a Mac developer but WinMerge is an option. Turns out additions to the fix file are concatenated at the bottom and easy to find. Not so easy in the nav file. Sending data to Robin. What a great service he provides!
