Dear GMT developers,

When I looked into gmt_getdatapath() in gmt_io.c, I found that the following condition in the if-statement around source:trunk/src/gmt_io.c@18200#L4456 seems to be always satisfied, because there is ", 99" in it.

#ifdef HAVE_GDAL
                if (gmtlib_check_url_name ((char *)stem), 99)
                        return ((char *)stem);                        /* With GDAL all the /vsi-stuff is given existence credit */

I would appreciate if you could review the part.

Thank you,

Strange, I don't get it what might have been the intention of that 99 but it's there since that code chunk was introduced in r13744 to fix issue #649

Fixed in r18274. An odd thing. Most likely I was trying to type ", 99" into another file but the mouse focus was on this file, and it just happen to land inside that if-test and not cause a syntax error (but a semantic error). Thanks for catching it!
