Detailed Description

GIS Library - Routines related to user's GRASS configuration, tmp, and miscellaneous files.

Functions related to the user's GRASS configuration, tmp, and miscellaneous files. Provides a set of routines for creating and accessing elements within the user's "rc" directory. The directory is in $HOME/.grass.

NOTE: As of 2001-03-25 this file is not hooked up. It is provided as a candidate for handling $HOME/.grass files and subdirectories. There may be more functionality desired (such as deletion routines, directory globs).

Function Documentation

char* G_rc_path ( const char *  element,
const char *  item 
)

Returns path to element and item.

Either element or item can be NULL, but not both. If element is NULL, then the file is assumed to live at the top level. If file is NULL, then it is assumed the caller is not interested in the file. If the element or rc dir do not exist, they are created. However, the file is never checked for.

Parameters
[in]element
[in]item
Returns
Pointer to string path
