There is no "gorun" in any of the GRASS libraries. It may have been a
subroutine in one of the programs. In any case you have a number of
choices, eg.:


The first is the standard Unix system() call, the sdecond is  the GRASS
version of it (in the gis library $(GISLIB)) which allows the
"" command to be interrupted without killing the program
which executes the G_system() routine.
