Not removed, but moved due to usage of copyrighted "numerical recipes"
functions. It is in src.nonGPL/display/d.param.scale/

Later on, if David's src/libes/gmath/ is finished, we can replace the NR
stuff by gmath functions and move d.param.scale back to standard path. Maybe
gmath is already sufficient for d.param.scale, I didn't investigate.

Thanks for this fix. Even I cannot test it but I'll remove the report.

That's right. It's only HDF4.3 in the sources and 3.2.
I propose to remove HDF4.3 from GRASS (except r.in.hdf/r.out.hdf) as it was
never working and is already outdated.

I don't know what to do here.

Eric, may I ask you to add your hints to the html/html/r.null.html?
Then we can remove them from BUGS.

Yes, both tested. Thanks! - removed.

Andreas, will you implement the "-z" as written in BUGS?

Definitely! Thanks for your work, Eric,
