HELP SECTION

COTVLOD
Type: Verb
Use:  COTVLOD loads a cataloged map into one or more television image
      memories.  The first map satisfying all the selection criteria
      given below will be loaded.  It is centered on a specified
      coordinate.
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.
  COORDINA....The X and Y coordinates are found as:
              Xpos = abs(CO(1)) + abs(CO(2))/60 + abs(CO(3))/3600
                 if any of CO(1), CO(2), CO(3) < 0: Xpos = -Xpos
              Ypos = abs(CO(4)) + abs(CO(5))/60 + abs(CO(6))/3600
                 if any of CO(4), CO(5), CO(6) < 0: Ypos = -Ypos
              Note that, although these are most suited to RA, Dec in
              sexagesimal notation, they can be used for any type of
              coordinate.  The units are standard FITS units (e.g
              degrees, m/sec, Hz, sec, etc.) except that right
              ascensions are in hours of time.
  IMSIZE......Maximum size of image to load in X and Y.  The image will
              be centered on the coordinate so the actual IMSIZE(i) used
              will be the lesser of IMSIZE(i) and the distance in the
              i'th coordinate to the nearer edge of the image.
              0 -> 8192 (i.e. use the nearest edge size).
  TXINC.......Load every TXINC'th column beginning at TBLC.
              TXINC = -1 => interpolate columns to fill as much
              of the screen as possible.  TXINC = -2 =>
              interpolate one column between image columns (if
              possible), -3 => 2 interpolated columns, etc.
  TYINC.......Load every TYINC'th row beginning at TBLC.
              TYINC = -1 => interpolate rows to fill as much of
              the screen as possible.  TYINC = -2 =>
              interpolate one row between image rows (if
              possible), -3 => 2 interpolated rows, etc.
  TVCHAN......Image channel to load.  0  =>  channel 1.
  TVCORN......TV pixel location (X,Y) of the bottom left-corner
              of the image.  0 => center on TV
  PIXRANGE....Min,Max intensity to display. 0 => entire range.
  FUNCTYPE....Image intensity transfer function
              'LN' => linear;        'NE' => negative lin.
              'LG' => log;           'NG' => negative log;
              'L2' => extreme log;   'N2' => negative extra log;
              'SQ' => square root,;  'NQ' => negative square root;
              others => linear.
