I'm afraid that I do not offer either support or degbugging
assistance for GRASSLinks. However, the error message suggests
that either the part of the code which parses the "regions" file
in the "lists" directory is failing to pick up the set of
regions that you have available (check that file - eg for
blank lines, etc), or else the html form is not
returning a value to the cgi. You'll have to use the usual
debugging tricks to track down the problem.
For my case, I've now moved on from GRASSLinks 2.0 and have
probably diverged irrevocably from the REGIS implementation.
The code has been completely re-written in perl, and I have
moved to a completely different metadatabase format - I do
not use files containing tables of the datasets any more,
but have developed a method to "publish" each dataset to the
application by creating a small metafile about it which is
placed in a known location.
I've also isolated the "GRASS" parts of the code deeper in the
structure. My motivation for this is that I intend to further
develop the interface to use other modelling packages apart
from GRASS to work on different data types (eg 3D).
My latest version is converging on stability, so I expect to
make it available to other users soon, though this will continue
to be as-is - ie completely unsupported.
