       d.colortable is used to display the color table associated with a raster map in the active
       frame  on  the  graphics  monitor.  The  map name should be an available raster map in the
       user’s current mapset search path and location.

       If the values of both lines and columns  are  not  specified  by  the  user,  d.colortable
       divides  the  active  frame  equally  among  the number of categories present in the named
       raster map. If one option is specified, the other is automatically set to accommodate  all
       categories.  If both are specified, as many categories as possible are displayed.

       If  the  user  specifies  the  name  of a map on the command line but does not specify the
       values of other parameters, parameter default values will be used.   Alternately,  if  the
       user  types  simply  d.colortable  on  the command line without any program arguments, the
       program will prompt the user for  parameter  settings  using  the  standard  GRASS  parser


       The user running the command:
       d.colortable map=soils color=red lines=1 columns=3
       would  see  the  active graphics frame divided into three columns extending the full frame
       height. The lines dividing the  color  table  associated  with  the  soils  map  would  be
       displayed  in  red.  The  user would see, at most, only three of the colors from the soils
       color table displayed in the active frame (because the user requested that this  frame  be
       divided into three sections).


       If  the  user  wishes  to  display  the entire color table associated with a map, the user
       should either stipulate a  number  of  lines  (rows)  and  columns  (cols)  sufficient  to
       accommodate the number of categories in the map’s color table, or fail to assign values to
       one or both of lines and/or columns.  If the user  runs  d.colortable  using  the  default
       number of lines and columns (the full graphics frame), all categories from the map’s color
       table will be displayed. However, if the user requests that  the  color  table  associated
       with a map which has 10 data categories be displayed in a graphics frame with only 3 lines
       (rows) and 2 columns (a total of six cells), only six of the ten map  categories  will  be

       The user should run d.erase between runs of d.colortable to avoid confusion.
