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.


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.


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.
