dcw/gshhg - Ireland
|Target version:||Candidate for next minor release|
garbled output when trying to highlight Ireland in pscoast using the -E option
apologies – incomplete mwe
using version 5.4.2 on Fedora 28
gmt pscoast -R$R -J$J -Ggrey -Wdarkgrey -EIE+gcornsilk > $OUT
gmt psconvert -Tg -A -P -Z $OUT
produces the attached file test.png
I think the problem is when the -E option is used and the target country (in this case with lots of islands) has some regions outside the -R option.
Moving -R to -15/20/35/60 (as in attached test1.png) and then cropping the resulting image to get the desired size solves the issue but is not ideal.

The good news this is fixed in trunk. The bad news is that we cannot easily back-port the solution to the old GMT5 branch, hence the next 5.4.4 will still have the same problem (but 6.x does not). So if you build from source then you are OK, otherwise you will need to do your workaround until 6.0.0 is released probably late this year.
