I think for raster maps there are two ways.
But be aware that that coversion is not possible with packed IDRISI files
The first way is to produce an ascii raster map and to put a grass-header
in front of the data (or use the cat command) and then run r.in.ascii.
The second way is to put the (unpacked) binary raster file in the cell
directory of your mapset and run r.support to give the additional
information. You will have problems with 2 byte data files, but i think
there is a module in IDRISI to overcome this.
For the polygon data, the only way I can think of at the moment is to
produce an arc/info ungenerate-file put it in the a directory called arc in
the current mapset and run v.in.arc to import it.
Hope this helps. Contact me directyl if yo like, so we can use our mother
