If you query a layer containing polygons; say for example a layer of the 
township, range, section, or land grant names; using d.what.vect, you get 
no only the category but the size of the polygon.

Is that what you are looking for or did I miss something? :)

The GRASSLinks sounds like a really great user interface.  Does it 
incorporate most of the functionality you can acheive with GRASS at the 
command line?

Talk to you later.
