       --help
           Print usage summary

       --verbose
           Verbose module output

       --quiet
           Quiet module output

       --ui
           Force launching GUI dialog

   Parameters:
       map=name [required]
           Name of vector map
           Or data source for direct OGR access

       arc_type=string[,string,...]
           Arc type
           Options: line, boundary
           Default: line,boundary

       coordinates=x1,y1,x2,y2 [required]
           Starting and ending coordinates

       arc_layer=string
           Arc layer
           Vector features can have category values in different layers. This  number  determines
           which layer to use. When used with direct OGR access this is the layer name.
           Default: 1

       node_layer=string
           Node layer
           Vector  features  can have category values in different layers. This number determines
           which layer to use. When used with direct OGR access this is the layer name.
           Default: 2

       arc_column=string
           Arc forward/both direction(s) cost column (number)

       arc_backward_column=string
           Arc backward direction cost column (number)

       node_column=string
           Node cost column

       color=string
           Original line color
           Default: black

       highlight_color=string
           Highlight color
           Default: red

       bgcolor=string
           Background color
           Default: white

DESCRIPTION

       d.path enables shortest path vector networking.  Costs may  be  either  line  lengths,  or
       attributes  saved  in  a database table.  Supported are cost assignments for both arcs and
       nodes, and also different in both directions of a vector line.  For  areas  cost  will  be
       calculated along boundary lines.

NOTE

       The  user  needs  to  display  a vector map before using d.path. If no graphics monitor is
       open, a file map.png is generated in the current directory.

       The ’from’ and ’to’ points are entered by mouse  into  the  map  displayed  in  the  GRASS
       monitor,  or  if  the  coordinates option is used they can be specified non-interactively.
       The actions bound to the mouse buttons are described in the terminal window  when  running
       the command.

       To  calculate  shortest  path non-interactively and save the path to a new vector map, use
       the v.net.path module.

EXAMPLES

       Interactive shortest path routing on road network (North Carolina sample dataset):
       g.region vector=roadsmajor -p
       d.vect roadsmajor
       d.path roadsmajor coordinates=668646.15,224447.16,668348.83,235894.02

       Non-interactive shortest path routing on road network (North Carolina sample dataset):
       d.path -b roadsmajor coordinates=668646.15,224447.16,668348.83,235894.02
