v.in.arc

mary l. daum


   I hope someone can help me with a v.in.arc problem.
We used it successfully a few weeks ago on a mainframe
(VAX/Ultrix) and it worked like a charm.  Now Grass is
installed on SUN workstations (it's no longer on the VAX)
and we can't get v.in.arc to work as expected.

   We have an ASCII file in ARC/INFO UNGENERATE format in
the arc subdirectory of the mapset we are using, and Grass
recognizes the existence of the file, so that must be OK.
But Grass is asking for a binary vector file, rather than
ASCII.                    ^^^^^^

   Am I missing something?  Thanks for any hints anyone
can offer.

When you run the interactive version of v.in.arc, the first prompt that
is displayed is for the OUTPUT (binary) vector file name.  This, obviously,
would be more intuitive if it came later in the series of prompts.
