according to the docs of mapserver 6.0.x it is possible to load the color of a polygon shape from the shapefile. This is a great feature cos otherwise we would have to define a class for each different colored shape.
But when I create the following mapfile and read it with mapserver 5.0.4, I get a
[MapServer Error]: getSymbol(): Parsing error near (SHAPE_COLOR):(line 1192)
The class in my mapfile is:
CLASS #default coloring OUTLINECOLOR 0 255 0 COLOR [SHAPE_COLOR] END
What is the proper syntax?
