[GRASS-user] GUI equivalent of command

The d.* commands are replaced in the GUI by GUI functions. That is, with few
exceptions, you can't call a d.* command from the GUI because they are for
x-monitors only--and the GUI display is a TclTk or wxPython canvas. There
are GUI equivalents for most d.* commands.

For querying, make sure that you have set the computational region to match
the display extents before querying.
