is there a possibility to import a Openstreetmap file via the script? After the import I want to export the features into shape files. The export function is clear, but I couldnt find any support at the import function for *.osm. ( Is there a way, a workaround or is it planed to adding this feature?

    You can use the IMPORT command to import those files just like any other. Just use the following:

    IMPORT FILENAME="path_to_file\filename.osm"

    and it should be detected and loaded right in.

    Let me know if I can be of further assistance.
