[GRASS-user] Error importing DMS into standard format usingv.

Trying again after converting DMS to deciaml degrees:
echo "L 4 1
1 1 " | v.in.ascii -n output=DMS_test format=standard --o
Error reading ascii file:
Building topology ...
0 primitives registered
0 areas built
0 isles built
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
The above command also fails if the coodinates are given to 6 decimals
places, which probably doesn't even matter.

Looking at the code, I see that DMS is only supported for
format=points; format=standard requires decimal values.
