HELP SECTION

DIFUV
Task:  This task writes out the difference or ratio of two UV data
       sets.  It does very little checking to see if they match.  One
       purpose of this task would be to difference the two throws of
       beam-switched single-dish continuum data.  Another use would be
       to subtract a residual uv data set from the original to produce
       a model uv data set.  The division operation could be used to
       produce a data set suitable for determining gains.

       Tables such as calibration (CL, SN), flag (FG), bandpass (BP),
       etc. are not applied to either data set.  The tables of the
       first data set are copied to the output; the tables of the
       second data set are ignored.
Adverbs:
  INNAME.....First input UV file name (name).      Standard defaults.
  INCLASS....First input UV file name (class).     Standard defaults.
  INSEQ......First input UV file name (seq. #).    0 => highest.
  INDISK.....First input UV file Disk drive #   .  0 => any.
  IN2NAME....2nd UV file name subtracted from or divided into the
             first data set.
  IN2CLASS...2nd UV file class
  IN2SEQ.....2nd UV file sequence number.
  IN2DISK....2nd UV file sequence number.
  OUTNAME....Output UV file name (name).     Standard defaults.
  OUTCLASS...Output UV file name (class).    Standard defaults.
  OUTSEQ.....Output UV file name (seq. #).   0 => highest unique
  OUTDISK....Disk drive # of output UV file. 0 => highest with
             space for the file.
  SOLINT.....Data are differenced only if times are close.  SOLINT sets
             that limit in minutes. 0 => 0.01 sec.
  OPTYPE.....'DIV' => do division, else do subtraction.
  FQCENTER,..>  0 => Change frequency axis reference pixel to
                     Nchan / 2 + 1
             else => do not change reference pixel
