HELP SECTION

GRDROP
Type: Verb
Use:  GRDROP is the simplest and only form for editing entries in the
      Gripe file.  It deletes the specified gripe if and only if it
      belongs to the current login user.  The verb GRINDEX should be
      used to determine the number of the gripe which is to be deleted.
      To be extra cautious, set JOBNUM and issue the command GRLIST to
      read the contents of the gripe which will be deleted if the GRDROP
      command is given.  When a gripe is dropped, a message giving the
      contents of the gripe and the fact that it has been GRDROPped is
      e-mailed to aipsmail@nrao.edu.  This will cause the AIPS group to
      ignore the previous gripe in most cases.  Thus, you should not use
      GRDROP simply to clean out old gripes when their contents are
      still of possible value.  Have the AIPS Manager use GRDROP (or
      FILINI) to clean up old gripes --- no messages will be sent to
      aipsmail.  It may be helpful to enter a second gripe to give the
      reasons why we should ignore the first one.
Adverbs:
  JOBNUM......Number of the gripe to be deleted.  0 => highest.
