[GRASS-dev] RE: [GRASS-user] Error importing DMS into standar dformat usingv. in.ascii

The advantage with importing 'standard' types (once I can memorize how to do
it) is that lines and boundaries automatically get digitized and snapped to
the vertices, which is nice when you're trying to create precise map
surrounds (which is what I'm doing). I might throw a few extra hints in the
man page based on my experiences getting it to work today.

I found the easiest input method is to use the spreadsheet of your 
choice and generate a CSV file. v.in.ascii is quite particular about 
extraneous characters.
