Someone supplied me with ArcView files, but I have no intentions of 
buying the (costly) ArcView application for the purpose.

I'm new this and so I'm not sure if GRASS can be used to 
open/manipulate ArcView files with, or at least I can't find anything 
about it by briefly looking at your website.

Can you kindly tell me if it may be possible? before I attempt to 
compile GRASS. Or in case you know if there are other open source 
application(s) available which you would recommend for the purpose?

The ArcView files I have, has the suffixes: .avl, .shp, .prj, .shx, 
.sbn and .dbf. Many thanks for any tips you may have!


It's the opinion of some that crops could be grown on the moon.  Which
raises the fear that it may not be long before we're paying somebody
not to.
