[GRASSLIST:3079] New TclTk interface for GRASS 5

For the past couple months, I've been developing an update to the 
venerable TclTk menu system for GRASS 5. Besides reorganizing the menu 
hierarchy, I've added all the rest of the GRASS commands that are not 
in the standard menus (about 200 new ones in all) along with commands 
to produce fairly nice looking output from GRASS screens as graphic 
image files you can paste into other applications (in *.xwd, *.tiff [8 
bit color], and *.png formats).

It has been tested pretty extensively and will soon go into the CVS for 
GRASS 5.3. It is designed for GRASS 5.3, but should work pretty well 
for GRASS 5.0.3 also (except where GRASS 5.3 modules have new options 
not available in GRASS 5.0.x). If you'd like to use it with your 
current GRASS installation, you can download the complete menus (as a 
*.tar.gz file) along with instructions for installing them at


If you have any questions, let me know.
