[GRASS-dev] v.type.sh question - important for 6.4 release

Because the way that v.type works makes it unusable in a GUI, Hamish  
wrote a script wrapper that DOES work in the GUI. Logically, it is  
placed in $GISBASE/etc/gui/scripts.

However, windows cannot execute it there. I'm not sure if it is  
because it needs to have a *.exe put on the end or because it DOES  
have a *.exe and the GUI doesn't reference it correctly. I'm not sure  
if it just needs to be renamed (i.e., drop the .sh), or moved to the  
main $GISBASE/script directory, or what. But I bet that it is pretty  
easy to fix this for windows. I just don't know what to do.

If someone could offer advice, I could get it working for the 6.4
