  The r.patch man page describes the program as "...using known category
values from one (or more) map layer(s) to fill in areas of 'no data' in
another map layer."

  However, I have learned that it also replaces data on one layer with data
from another layer, not just the null-valued cells. I had searched for
another module to do this, then decided to try r.patch. It works.

  Therefore, I suggest that the man page be adjusted to reflect this broader
