You just launch GRASS with the old Tcl/Tk interface
(http://grass.osgeo.org/grass64/manuals/html64_user/gis.m.html) and
the tutorial was made with the "new" wxGUI

GRASS 6.4.0RC5+39438 is quite old, there are a lot of bug fixes and
improvements in the user interface, you will better have to download
the latest release from the website
(http://grass.osgeo.org/download/index.php). As the wxGUI is now the
default GUI, you will better understand what is written in the
tutorial ;)

> I have GRASS 6.4.0RC5+39438 (2009).  I followed the tutorial, with lots
> of mental corrections and managed to get the example displayed.  The
> tutorial is good, just needs some tweeking to match the GRASS display.
> A quick introduction to the 6.4 wxGUI and raster maps,
> http://grass.osgeo.org/wiki/Quick_wx_tutorial,
> Does not correspond to the GRASS display.
> For example,
>> Once inside add a raster map layer such as "elevation" from the
>>  PERMANENT mapset. To do this click on the checkerboard toolbar
>> button with a "+" on it and then select the map name from the
>> pull-down list which appears, and click [Ok].
> There is no icon checkerboard with a "+" on it.  Rather, there is a
> green, red, orange icon with an arrow in it.  However, it does have the
> description "Add raster layer".  And, there is not a pull down list.
> Rather, a layer is added, labeled raster1 and clicking the "i" button
> brings up a pop-up that allows selecting the map.
> I am not good at describing things.  I don't know what the author
> intended the icons to be.
> How do I help feeding back the corrections?  Or, is this tutorial for a
> newer version?
