r.support allows the user to create and/or edit raster map support
information. Editing of raster map color tables, category labels, header,
history, and title is supported. Category labels can also be copied from
another raster map.
If metadata options such as title or history are given the
module will run non-interactively. If only the map name is given
r.support will run interactively within a terminal shell and the
user with be prompted for input.
Freeform metadata information is stored in a "hist" file which may be
appended to by using the history option. Currently this is limited to
50 lines of text with a maximum line length of 78 characters. Any input
larger than this will be wrapped to the next line.
All other metadata strings available as standard options are limited to
