#436 closed enhancement (wontfix)

access to python swig bindingsa from outside of a grass session

Description

The SWIG bindings to Python are very useful from inside GRASS but would be much more powerful if python could access GRASS functions from outside a grass session.

I note the following in the TODO file at http://svn.osgeo.org/grass/grass/branches/develbranch_6/swig/python/TODO: ""

  • enable calls from outside GRASS

"" If this is now possible (in 6.4.0 or 7.0.0) could a relevant example be posted to show how we can access from outside a grass session?

Many thanks

Mark

you just need some environment variables set to mimic a grass session.

Resolution: wontfix
Status: newclosed

SWIG support is removed, try ctypes in devel versions of GRASS instead.
