   Running 6.5svn on Slackware and trying to import an ASCII text file with
lat/lon coordinates. Here are the first two lines of the file:


   When I run this command:

v.in.ascii -n
out=biosites format=standard col='name varchar(10), y double precision, x
double precision' x=3 y=2 cat=0 --o

(all on one line, but wrapped in the MUA), I get this error:

ERROR: Error reading ASCII file: (bad type)

   Where should I start looking for the source of this error?
