The GRASS Programer's Manual should describe everything you need.
Most importantly, you do not need to know the file formats for GRASS
as GRASS provides an open development library. By using this and

maintanance problems from version to version. If a future version
of GRASS would change file formats, one could probably update one's
conversion software with little more than of relinkage.
Wouldn't it be nice if most commercial software came with open
