DESCRIPTION

g.search.module searches for given keyword in GRASS GIS modules name, description, keywords and optionally manpages, too. Also installed addons are considered in the search.

NOTES

Multiple keywords may be specified, g.search.modules will search for all of them.

EXAMPLE

Search all modules, where keywords buffer OR clip can be found:
g.search.modules keyword=buffer,clip

r.circle
    keywords: raster,buffer,geometry,circle
    description: Creates a raster map containing concentric rings around a
                 given point.

r.buffer.lowmem
    keywords: raster,buffer
    description: Creates a raster map showing buffer zones surrounding cells
                 that contain non-NULL category values. This is the low-
                 memory alternative to the classic r.buffer module.

r.buffer
    keywords: raster,buffer
    description: Creates a raster map showing buffer zones surrounding cells
                 that contain non-NULL category values.

Search all modules, where keywords overlay AND clip can be found with some fancy terminal output (not shown here):

g.search.modules keyword=clip,overlay -a -c

v.clip
    keywords: vector,clip,area
    description: Extracts features of input map which overlay features
                 of clip map.

v.overlay
    keywords: vector,geometry,spatial
              query,clip,difference,intersection,union
    description: Overlays two vector maps offering clip, intersection,
                 difference, symmetrical difference, union operators.

Search in manual pages as well:

g.search.modules -m keyword=kapri

db.execute
    keywords: database,attribute table,SQL
    description: Executes any SQL statement. For SELECT statements use
                 'db.select'.

db.select
    keywords: database,attribute table,SQL
    description: Selects data from attribute table. Performs SQL query
