1. "georef=F:\anzhuang\Tomcat 5.5\1245076611265.tif" must be passed to
g.proj as a single argument. If you try to invoke g.proj via e.g. 
system(), the string will be split into multiple arguments due to

2. The braces {...} are Tcl's quoting syntax; they prevent the string
from being split into multiple arguments within Tcl, but it won't work
for other languages.

For system(), try:

	system("g.proj -c \"georef=F:\\anzhuang\\Tomcat 5.5\\1245076611265.tif\"");


	const char *filename = "F:\\anzhuang\\Tomcat 5.5\\1245076611265.tif";
	char buf[1024];

	sprintf(buf, "g.proj -c \"georef=%s\"", filename);
