#1693 closed enhancement (fixed)

v.colors placeholder raster map naming option

Description

Hello,

for producing printproof maps (via ps.map in bash scripts) I would find useful to have the possibility, beside the -s flag, to specify the map name for the placeholder raster map of v.colors (placeholder=).

Current workaround I'm using is to parse v.colors stderr and grab the vcolors_* map name.

Best,

Alessandro Frigeri

Hi,

it sounds reasonable enough, I'll put it on my todo list for when I get back to civilization. keep in mind that using the raster is just a cheap work-around, hopefully we'll be able to do something a bit less hackish in grass7.

Hi,

now backported to relbr64 with r57572.

I'm not sure if/how this is handled in trunk after the v.colors rewrite to C, but as far as 6.x goes the wish can be considered closed.

regards, Hamish

Closing since v.colors in G7 does not have a "placeholder" parameter.
