I'm new to the list, and to proj, and to Geography. I'm working in some 
maps for GPS receivers (Garming). One of the tools (graphical 
interface) for map creation (visualization) assumes the data is in 
lat/long datum WGS84.

All the vector data available for Mexico is in lcc NAD27. The data is 
available in shapefiles for which I implemented a C program that 
successfully extracts the coordinates and translate them to lat/long 
in the NAD27 datum using the proj library. 

The questions are: Is it possible to shift (?) the data to WGS84 using 

Which command/parameters should I use to do it?

Any help will be really appreciated,
