HELP SECTION

BLOAT
Task:  This task will read a line or pseudo-continuum data base and
       convert it into a data base with more spectral channels.  The
       output number of line channels can be specified and zero
       filled (i.e. flagged), the input visibilities are then inserted
       as the specified channels.  The reference frequency may be
       changed and u, v, and w are converted the the output reference
       frequency.  After BLOAT data sets can be concatenated via DBCON
       and compressed using UVSRT and VBMRG.
Adverbs:
  INNAME.....Input UV file name (name).      Standard defaults.
  INCLASS....Input UV file name (class).     Standard defaults.
  INSEQ......Input UV file name (seq. #).    0 => highest.
  INDISK.....Disk drive # of input UV file.  0 => any.
  OUTNAME....Output UV file name (name).     Standard defaults.
  OUTCLASS...Output UV file name (class).    Standard defaults.
  OUTSEQ.....Output UV file name (seq. #).   Standard defaults.
  OUTDISK....Disk drive # of output UV file.  0 => highest with
             space for the file.
  APARM......Control information:
             1=> the number of line channels desired in the
                 output data base, 0 -> 1.
             2=> The output channel number of the first input
                 channel.  0 -> 1.
             3=> First channel to copy
             4=> Last input channel to copy
             5+6=>The output reference frequency (Hz).  The two
                 values are converted to double precision and
                 added.  The reference channel will be the input
                 reference channel converted by APARM(2).
