I am using GRASS for a simulation which generates litrealy thousands
of layers. Before I start a new simulation, I want to delete all
existing layers, and I run into th following error message:
> g.mremove -f rast=* vect=* region=*
Collecting map names for current mapset <simulation>...
exec: 218: g.remove: Argument list too long
Is there anything I can do? except iterating through all layers and
deleting them separately?
And if no, How could I do this easily?
