HELP SECTION

ALTDEF
Type: Verb
Use:  ALTDEF is used to add or alter the description in the
      catalogue map header of the relationship between the
      spectral-line velocity and the frequency.  The verb
      ALTSWTCH is used to select which description is normally
      used in labeling the image.
Adverbs:
  INNAME......Image name(name).       Standard defaults.
  INCLASS.....Image name(class).      Standard defaults.
  INSEQ.......Image name(seq. #).     0 => highest.
  INDISK......Disk drive # of image.  0 => any.
  AXTYPE......Two-part string choosing 'OPT'ical or 'RAD'io
              definition of velocity and 'LSR', 'HEL'iocentric,
              or 'OBS'erver velocity zero-point.  The latter
              choice only affects labeling.  For example,
              AXTYPE = 'RAD LSR' selects the LSR-relative
              velocities in the radio convention.  'LSR'
              and 'OPT' are the defaults.
  AXVAL.......Velocity at (new) reference pixel. Value is
              AXVAL(1) + AXVAL(2) in double precision.  No
              default.  Units are meters/sec.
  AXREF.......Reference pixel location for velocities. No
              default.
  RESTFREQ....Line rest frequency in Hz = RESTFREQ(1) +
              RESTFREQ(2) in double precision.
