r.unpack/v.unpack: add sanity check for auto-detecting if pack file contains raster or vector data

Reported by: neteler Owned by: grass-dev@…

Small issue for GRASS data transfer via "pack" format:

In case that a user doesn't use a self-explaining file name, it may not be obvious if r.unpack or v.unpack has to be used. In case of running the wrong command, an "ugly" error message appears rather than telling the user to apply the other respective unpack command.

Solution: simply check for the presence of 'mapname/cell' or 'mapname/coor' and generate a user message if the wrong content was detected.

Message suggestions:


grass.fatal(_("This GRASS GIS pack file contains vector data. Use v.unpack to unpack <%s>) % map_name))


grass.fatal(_("This GRASS GIS pack file contains raster data. Use r.unpack to unpack <%s>) % map_name))
