you may have a look here:
How to use GRASS in batch mode (fully script based)?:
This has been simplified in GRASS 5:
grass5 [-h | -help | --help] [-text | -tcltk] [[[<GISDBASE>/]<LOCATION_NAME>/]<MAPSET>]
-h or -help or --help print this help message
-text use text based interface
-tcltk use Tcl/Tk based graphical interface
GISDBASE initial database
LOCATION_NAME initial location
MAPSET initial mapset
GISDBASE/LOCATION_NAME/MAPSET fully qualified initial LOCATION directory
GRASS_TCLSH set tclsh shell name to override 'tclsh'
GRASS_WISH set wish shell name to override 'wish'
Hope this helps,
