All d.* modules that worked as command line tools before (e.g., d.rast, d.vect) still work that way. See further explanations at <http://lists.osgeo.org/pipermail/grass-user/2009-December/053520.html>

The current GUI will do all of the interaction of prior d.* modules with built-in GUI with the exception of a few modules (notably r.digit [super primitive and not really needed with vdigit and v.to.rast], i.class, and i.ortho.photo) and more.

I did read (almost all of) your posts WRT to grass70 and d.*zzz.
However, I want to say that, honestly, I appreciate the time you invest
for clarifications (again).

It's one of those things that gives the community a meaning and
personally it makes me feel being a part of it.

Thank You, Nikos
