#1869 new defect

osmisis seems to produce backslash escapes in its output

Reported by: xylome Owned by: xylome
Priority: minor Milestone:
Component: osmosis Version:
Keywords: backslash escape Cc:


it seems as osmosis escapes some characters with backslashes

  • a semicolon gets \s
  • a backslash gets
  • i found also a \e but do not know its original character

this is a problem, as some users are using this osmosis output as an input for their edits and therefore the \s gets into the osm database where it is expanded to
s in the next round and so on.

osmosis should revert these escaped characters to their original characters before they appear in the output.
