[GRASS-user] Floating Grid to raster GRASS

I have a bunch of files that are floating grid data.  They have the
file extension .flt and there is a header file .hdr.  r.in.gdal reads
in the .flt file fine, but errors out with the hdr.  The gdalinfo
spits out a res=0.3, but the attached metadata says that the
resolution is 1m.  Is there a way to find out what the reality is
without talking with the folks that provided the data?  Thanks for all
of the help.

Let's not spend our time and resources thinking about things that are
so little or so large that all they really do for us is puff us up and
make us feel like gods.  We are mammals, and have not exhausted the
annoying little problems of being mammals.
