HELP SECTION

BPERR
Type: Task
Use:  BPERR takes as input a text file output by PRTMSG containing BPASS
      closure error messages.  It averages up all times in a BPASS
      execution (which should be all for the same type of data, e.g the
      same FQ).  Multiple BPASS executions can be in the file and will
      be plotted separately.

      Run BPASS with BPASSPRM(2) = 1 and BPASSPRM(6 and 7) set
      appropriately.  Then do PRTMSG with OUTPRINT set to a text file in
      your area.  Then set INTEXT = OUTPR; OUTPR = something else and
      run BPERR.
Adverbs:
  USERID......The ID of the owner of the image.  0 => current
              user.  32000 => any user.
  INNAME......Image name to attach plots.       Standard defaults.
  INCLASS.....Image name (class).      Standard defaults.
  INSEQ.......Image name (seq. #).     0 => highest.
  INDISK......Disk unit #.             0 => any.
  INTEXT......File name for BPASS messages input to task.
  OUTPRINT....Output file for averages of inputs. ' ' => none.
  DOALL.......Output and plot each IF and correlator if > 0, else just
              the average.
  PIXRANGE....Clip at these intensities.   0,0 => data min, max.
  LTYPE.......Labelling type, see HELP LTYPE for details:
              1 = border, 2 = no ticks, 3 or 7 = standard, 4 or 8 =
              relative to ref. pixel, 5 or 9 = relative to subimage
              (BLC, TRC) center, 6 or 10 = pixels.  7-10 all labels
              other than tick numbers and axis type are omitted.
              Less than 0 is the same except that the plot file
              version number and create time are omitted.
              Add n * 100 to alter the metric scaling.
  DOTV........> 0 => plot directly on the TV device, otherwise make a
              plot file for later display on one or more devices
              (including the TV if desired).  = 0 => no plot
  GRCHAN......Graphics channel (1 - 7) to use for line drawing.  0 => 1.
