SHPTOUCH.ZIP (17K) -- Shapefile header update utility


The EZ Shapefile class (see Classes) does not accurately state the file size in the .shp file header. For most applications such as ArcView that is not a problem, but some applications such as FME do not like that. SHPTOUCH is a command line utility that updates the file size in the header. Includes example scripts which use the EZ Shapefile class to create a shapefile and then SHPTOUCH to update its header.
