Most of the job was done by Jacques Bouchard!

The current status is the version you get from the GRASS 4.2.1 server:
  -> tcltkgrass V 1.1

Great idea! This is what I am hoping for the future. The V1.1 shall be the init
release for a new GRASS graphical user interface (GUI). There is high potential
develop this package into a friendly, intuitive GUI for GRASS.

Please send all you suggestions to me:

I will coordinate tcltkgrass the next time. Baylor's people are concentrated on
GRASS 5.0 (floating point raster).

The d.pan command is included in GRASS 4.2.1. I have added more than 30 modules
Get GRASS 4.2.1 from

There is also a list of included modules and certainly a development 
history text (and more...).
