This isn't a direct answer, but a way round might be the R/GRASS
interface, then do the partitioning in R - maybe with a short interpreted
function? - and move the new sites files back again. Maybe you don't need
the overhead of learning R, but then in some kinds of data analysis it may
be a more flexible tool than a compiled GRASS program, since it is
interpreted. The latest interface version is on CRAN under
src/contrib/Devel (http://cran.r-project.org), and
ftp://reclus.nhh.no/pub/R/GRASS_0.1-7.tar.gz - you do need R too, and will
find the latest source on CRAN. The R packages: spatial (in VR) and
splancs provide a number of spatial process generators, so that
reproducing the functionality of s.kcv in an interpreted R function seems
feasible. If R might be an answer, please let me know and I could help you
try this route out.
