HELP SECTION

COWINDOW
Type:  verb
Use:   To set values in the adverbs BLC and TRC so that a subarray of an
       image centered on a particular X,Y coordinate will be selected.
Input 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 select 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.  Note
             that an even value of IMSIZE(i) cannot be centered upon a
             pixel, so IMSIZE(i)+1 is used.
             0 -> 16384 (i.e. use the nearest edge size).
Input/Output adverbs
  BLC........Bottom left corner of set window in pixel coordinates; only
             the first two values are changed.  BLC(3)-BLC(7) are used
             to set the depth into the image which may  affect the
             first two coordinate values.
Output adverbs:
  TRC........Upper right corner of set window in pixel coordinates; only
             the first two values are changed.
