[GRASS-user] shortest distance within a points layer

It means that I have to select shortest distances from the distance
matrix from outside GRASS (because I can't use MIN, GROUP BY, and
similar statements with db.select with DBF driver), and then update
somehow the points attrbitutes from the previous selection... Mmm,
it's quite a common task, there should be something more
