DESCRIPTION

       v.pack collects (packs) vector map elements  and  support  files  in  GRASS  Database  and
       creates  an compressed file using gzip algorithm. This file can be used to copy the vector
       map to another machine. The packed file can be afterwards unpacked by v.unpack.

NOTES

       Name of the pack file is determined by default from input parameter. Optionally  the  name
       can be given by output parameter.

EXAMPLE

       Pack up vector map random_point into random_point.pack file.
       v.pack input=random_point
       the vector map can be afterwards unpacked by
       v.unpack input=random_point.pack
