DESCRIPTION

       d.title generates to standard output a string which can be used by d.text to draw a  TITLE
       for the raster map layer name in the active display frame on the graphics monitor.  Output
       created by d.title can be redirected into a file, or piped directly into d.text to display
       the  map  TITLE  created  by  d.title.  The map TITLE created will include the map layer’s
       name, TITLE, MAPSET, LOCATION_NAME,  geographic  region  boundary  coordinates,  and  cell
       resolution.   If  the  -d draw flag is used, then d.title will call d.text for you and the
       title will be automatically rendered to the display.

NOTES

       The text created with d.text will not necessarily fit within the active display  frame  on
       the graphics monitor; the user should choose a text size appropriate to this frame.

EXAMPLES

       For  example,  a  user  wishing to create a suitable TITLE for the Spearfish, SD soils map
       layer and to display this TITLE in the active display frame on the graphics monitor  might
       type the following:
       d.title map=soils color=red size=5 > TITLE.file
       d.text < TITLE.file Alternately, the user might pipe d.title output directly into d.text:
       d.title map=soils color=red size=5 | d.text

       A  file  created  by  d.title can be displayed with d.text.  Information contained in this
       file takes precedence over the color and size parameters for d.text.
