New GRASS-Python Interface starts to work

After an extra round of hacking, the new SWIG based new GRASS 6.3 Python interface starts work within a GRASS session. We can now call GRASS C functionality in Python scripts. Via libera for GRASS as GIS backbone for other software packages!

    Right now I have added the Vect API, too. Be sure to update also the include/ directory to grab latest fixes there.Take care to run it within a GRASS session. This will change soon with Alessandro’s extended interface which provides a session management to call GRASS C functionality from outside GRASS.
