since a while ago the parser has not liked option names with
upper case characters. e.g. STREAM_DIR= in r.terraflow. I think
there was some posts about it, you were not the only person to
have trouble with addon scripts.
try changing to r= k= c= and I'm guessing it should work.
why? I've got no idea & it should probably be fixed before 6.4.0
as it (case in point) breaks back-compatibility even if none of
the standard GRASS modules use it. It is my guess that currently
r.terraflow will have issues because of it.
tabs, --help all work fine for me.
