Following the example given in

I'm trying to import D:M:S coordinates into a Lat-Long Location to create a
line vector:

echo "L 4 1
66:30:00W|44:00:00N" | v.in.ascii -n output=test format=standard
Error reading ascii file:
Building topology ...
0 primitives registered
0 areas built
0 isles built
Attaching islands:
Attaching centroids: Topology was built.
Number of nodes     :   0
Number of primitives:   0
Number of points    :   0
Number of lines     :   0
Number of boundaries:   0
Number of centroids :   0
Number of areas     :   0
Number of isles     :   0

Any ideas what is causing this error?
