DESCRIPTION

       The r.out.bin program exports a GRASS raster map  to  a  binary  array  file.  Optionally,
       output  can  be  sent  to  standard  output  (stdout)  for  direct input (pipe) into other
       applications. Data is exported according to the original GRASS raster type  (e.g.  float).
       If  the  "-i"  flag  is  specified,  an integer array is output. The region parameters are
       printed to stderr.

NOTES

       With the -h flag, data can be directly used by GMT as Grid Format 1 (float) or 2  (short).
       For example:
       r.out.bin -h input=grass.raster output=new.grd
       grdinfo new.grd=1 (if float)

       Exported data can be piped directly into the GMT program xyz2grd.
       r.out.bin input=grass.raster output=- | xyz2grd -R....  -ZTLf -
       The example uses the GMT program xyz2grd with the -ZTLf flag indicating that a float array
       was output.
