DESCRIPTION

v.pack collects (packs) vector map elements and support files in GRASS Database and creates an compressed file using gzip algorithm. This file can be used to copy the vector map to another machine. The packed file can be afterwards unpacked by v.unpack.

NOTES

Name of the pack file is determined by default from input parameter. Optionally the name can be given by output parameter.

EXAMPLE

Pack up vector map random_point into random_point.pack file.
v.pack input=random_point
the vector map can be afterwards unpacked by
v.unpack input=random_point.pack
