There has been a lot talking around the v.in.arc command lately.
Maybe it is not so easy to use, but I thing some problems are due to
the problems in arc/info. I am no arc/info expert, but learned some
aml to survive. I wrote this script last spring to make make the
export part in arc/info easier. It is a Bourne shell script that
creates two aml scripts and runs arc info to do the ungenerate
commands and dumps info content with the two amls. The script does
ungenerate both on lines and polygon data at the same time. It up
to the user to decide then what to import when v.in.arc is used.
The script should be run from the unix prompt.
I called the script "m.export.arc.covers.sh". I hope some people can be
helped by this script. Please respond to me if you improve the script.
