DOSCALE
Type:   Adverb  (logical,  > 0  =>  true)
Use:    Tells a task to perform some operation involved with scaling
        the data.
Null value:  false (-1).
Tasks:
  BLCHN........Compute closure offset corrections on a channel-by-channel
               basis.  DOSCALE controls the application of spectral index
               parameters.
  BPASS........Computes spectral bandpass correction table.  DOSCALE
               controls the application of spectral index parameters.
  CLIP.........Edits data based on amplitudes, phases, and weights out
               of range.  DOSCALE specifies that the data be
               normalized by the fluxes (and spectral index) to be
               found in the source table.
  CPASS........Computes polynomial spectral bandpass correction table.
               DOSCALE controls the application of spectral index
               parameters.
  PCAL.........Determines instrumental polarization for UV data.
               DOSCALE controls the application of spectral index
               parameters.
  RFLAG........Flags data set based on time and freq rms in fringe
               visibilities.  DOSCALE specifies the determination of
               separate baseline/IF amplitude gains to be applied to
               the data prior to plotting and flagging.
  SYPRT........Prints values from the SY table.  DOSCALE > 0 tells
               the task to scale each antenna separately.
  TYSMO........Smooths and filters a calibration TY or SY table.
               DOSCALE controls the normalization of the smoothed
               table values (> 0 -> normalize).
  UVFND........Prints selected data from UV data set to search for
               problems,  DOSCALE controls whether fluxes are
               scaled by SU table values and spectral index before
               comparison to "clip" levels.
  UVPLT........Plots data from a UV data base in multiple ways.
               DOSCALE contrtols whether visibilities are scaled
               by SU table fluxes and spectral index before plotting.
