I am using GRASS and connecting it to another application. The other application needs an FLT file of the raster map which I should export from GRASS. The other application only reads FLT files. Can GRASS export an FLT file

Isn't the GRASS manual of any help? After all, .flt (ESRI float export) files are just a string of single-precision binary values plus a header file. – whuber Aug 19 '11 at 15:00

If FLT is supported by GDAL, then just use r.out.gdal and select that format.
