Description

i.e. add something like 'public static boolean hasCompanionFiles()' to IFormatReader. We could eventually use this to generate the ordering of the readers in readers.txt.

  • Status changed from new to closed
  • Resolution set to fixed

There are now two ways to determine whether or not companion files are expected, given an IFormatReader:

'boolean hasCompanionFiles()' indicates whether or not the format supports multi-file datasets. However, this method returning true does not guarantee that a particular dataset in that format won't be a single file dataset.

'boolean isSingleFile(String)' indicates whether or not the given file has companion files.
