Use:  Deletes contents of message file including log of input
      commands and messages produced by AIPS and by tasks shed

              will be selected.  Thus, PRTASK = 'UV' will cause
              the messages of UVMAP, UVSUB, UVCOP, etc. to be
              deleted.  ' ' => all tasks by this rule.
