HELP SECTION

HISEQ
Task:  This task converts an image from regular units to a histogram
       equalized form.  The output image will have a flat histogram in
       the range 0 to 1.  NOTE: this operation is not linear and hence
       the output intensities no longer have physical meaning.
Adverbs:
  INNAME.....Input image name (name).            Standard defaults.
  INCLASS....Input image name (class).           Standard defaults.
  INSEQ......Input image name (seq. #).          0 => highest.
  INDISK.....Disk drive # of input image.        0 => any.
  OUTNAME....Output image name (name).           Standard defaults.
  OUTCLASS...Output image name (class).          Standard defaults.
  OUTSEQ.....Output image name (seq. #).         0 => highest unique.
  OUTDISK....Disk drive # of output image.       0 => highest disk
             number with sufficient space.
  BLC........Bottom right corner in input image of desired subimage.
             Default is entire image.
  TRC........Top right corner in input image of desired subimage.
             Default is entire image.
  PIXRANGE...Range of image intensities to include; those below or equal
             PIXR(1) are assigned -0.5/NBOXES and those above or equal
             PIXR(2) are assigned 1 + 0.5/NBOXES on output.  NOTE:
             PIXR(1) and PIXR(2) are not included in the histogram.
             This is to avoid a pure zero background (for example)
             altering the remaining histogram.  The default is lowest to
             highest value in the image.  If you wish those pixels to be
             included in the histogram, then set PIXR(1) slightly less
             than the lowest and PIXR(2) slightly  greater vthan the
             highest.
  NBOXES.....Number of intensity intervals used: 10 - 1000.  0 => 1000.
  DOHIST.....>0 => record the peak intensity of each box Warning - this
             will generate a lot of history entries.
