Allow input coordinates to v.what to create a bounding rectangle for querying
|Reported by:||cmbarton||Owned by:|
Add a flag so that 2 coordinate point pairs would be interpreted as opposite corners of a bounding rectangle that would select and query all vector objects within (or partly within) the selection rectangle.
A further enhancement would be to allow more than 2 coordinate pairs to define the vertices of a polygon that would select vector objects.
This would make it possible to create a GUI interface for interactive querying using a mouse-drawn rectangle (or polygon) in the display window.
