   Parameters:
       input=name [required]

       output=name
           Name for output file (default is <input>.pack)

DESCRIPTION

       r.pack collects raster map elements and support  files  and  compressed  them  using  gzip
       algorithm for copying. The resulting packed file can be afterwards unpacked within a GRASS
       GIS session by r.unpack.  Since the selected raster  map  is  not  exported  but  natively
       stored, the current region is not respected. Hence r.pack stores the entire raster map.

NOTES

       By default, the name of the pack file is determined from the input parameter. Optionally a
       different name can be given by output  parameter.   Currently  only  2D  raster  maps  are
       supported.

EXAMPLE

       Pack up the entire raster map aspect into aspect.pack file:
       r.pack input=aspect
       The packed raster map file  aspect.pack can afterwards be unpacked by
       r.unpack input=aspect.pack
