>XGRASS is being written using Xgen and something called Xclip (a product

>Anyhow, the GRASS4.0 stuff will continue on as it now exists (command and
>interactive versions of some commands co-existing) - hence, the curses based
>routines will continue on (at least for a while).  The XGRASS menus do create

>that interfaces to some of the interactive and/or more complicated commands
>(which are really more like modules) will also be written. 
>The basic XGRASS is complete right now.  Documentation to accompany it is
