#3315 closed enhancement (wontfix)

wingrass: provide grass.bat

Reported by: martinl Owned by: grass-dev@…
Priority: normal Milestone: 7.6.2
Component: Installation Version: svn-trunk
Keywords: wingrass Cc:
CPU: Unspecified Platform: Unspecified

Description

Currently winGRASS provides only grassXY.bat files. The package could also provide generic grass.bat file (similarly to linux packages).

Advantage: Software like QGIS processing will not depend on version-based GRASS bat file (which avoids problem when GRASS is upgraded in OSGeo4W, eg. grass70 -> grass72)

Disadvantage: When more version of GRASS installed (grass, grass-dev) in OSGeo4W, last installation will override grass.bat.

I'd consider conflicting files a packaging bug - so this should probably be a separate package.

Perhaps with a env variable that allows to control, which version to load. Could be done using a etc/ini/packagename.bat in the grass package, which wouldn't produce a conflict.

Although that might produce the above behaviour (last ini wins). Not sure if there is a defined order in which the ini batchfiles are executed.

It's a bug - uninstalling one would remove "both".
