Summary0000084: Mapserver crashes when attempting html export with -charinfo option (non-critical, resolution not needed for issue 1)
DescriptionDuring html exporting, a blank string is fed to a function which is not expecting one, which then crashes attempting to create a buffer
Steps To ReproduceStart a server, make sure at least one mapserver is running
Create a csv file under 'c:\charinfo\req\shard' (any filename so long as it is .csv)
Inside the csv file, put the name of a valid character (in quotes if a space is in the name) as the only entry
Run a new mapserver with the -charinfo command line option
This mapserver will crash
Additional InformationNeeds a one line fix as per attached diff to reject a string if the buffer size would be negative
TagsNo tags attached.
