[GRASSLIST:6497] Re: m.proj s.in.ascii s.to.rast

there's information in here:
But, essentially:
m.proj hasn't been ported to GRASS 6.0
s.in.ascii is now v.in.ascii
s.to.rast is now v.to.rast

The rationale behind this has been the move away from sites and
vectors into vectors, with points (former sites) being a particular
type of vector. Or so I understand it!
Hope that helps.
