A list with a short description of the *r.pi* modules can be found
below. More in depth description of a certain module (commands, flags,
options) can be found in the respective folder (like
*r.pi.graph*). The functions/algorithms
of the modules are not yet very extensive but will be expanded in the
future. Please submit any bug/feature you might encounter to improve the
functionality.

The program will interactively query the user for input, output and options (GUI). However the module can be also run from the terminal prompt (CLI) and might be implemented in e.g. a bash-script.

It is highly recommended to read the help pages or e.g the overview documents of Fragstats to get a better impression of problems, possibilities and caveats.
