Do you have an opinion on the G_asprintf() by Eric Miller that we use in
GRASS 5.7?:



Also did you have a chance to have a good look at g.setproj (I see you
have kept it; I wouldn't)? I always thought it seems to be quite badly
written and had been done separately from v.proj and src/libes/proj,
which apparently were done by SCS, and had been done quite well and
consistently. I think the original idea was to create PROJ_INFO /
PROJ_UNITS manually with a text editor and g.setproj (perhaps originally
called m.setproj?) was added by somebody else.
As you have obviously been looking at the old code more than I have I am
just interested if you have formed an opinion on the evolution of the proj

I look forward to hearing more about KerGIS.
