80. The rotation model is the same as cs2cs does: position

thank you very very much for the basic information that the zone nubmer 32 is in x and that i have to drop it. Now my cs2cs call works fine:
cs2cs +init=epsg:25832 +to +init=epsg:31467 <<EOF
> 536852 5690425
3536938.82      5692264.88 1.20

I was working on this problem for many hours. I am a newbie regarding coordinate transformation as you can see. Again: Thank you.
