       osmcoastline_ways  extracts coastline ways from OSM data and writes them into a Spatialite
       database.  The output data is meant for debugging and statistics.   Use  the  osmcoastline
       program to assemble coastlines for “real” use.

       You  have  to  run  osmcoastline_ways  on  the  output of the osmcoastline_filter program,
       otherwise it will not work correctly!

       The data is written to the Spatialite database OUTPUT-DB.  If OUTPUT-DB is  not  set,  the
       default  “coastline-ways.db”  is used.  A single table “ways” is written.  It contains the
       IDs of all ways, their geometries, and the contents of their “name” and “source” tags.

       osmcoastline_ways outputs the sum of all way lengths.
