does "area" not make sense for all other options as well?

  option   Action to be done:
        add - add a new category
        del - delete category
        chlayer - change layer number (e.g. layer=3,1 changes layer 3 to layer 1)
        sum - add the value specified by cat option to the current category value
        report - print report (statistics), in shell style:
                layer type count min max
        print - print category values, more cats in the same layer are separated by '/'
           options: add,del,chlayer,sum,report,print
           default: add
