HELP SECTION

HITEXT
Type: Verb
Use:  HITEXT allows the user to copy selected lines from the
      history file of an image or uv data set to a text file.
      This text file may then be edited with the user's favorite
      editor and then put back into one or more history files
      (using verb HINOTE).  To replace a history file with an
      edited file, first run HITEXT, then clear the hsitory with
      verb STALIN or DELEXT, edit the text file, and finally
      read it back with HINOTE.  If you are doing this, you
      should not use adverbs HISTART, HIEND, and PRTASK!
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.
  OUTTEXT.....OUTTEXT specifies a text file to be created and
              filled with the selected lines of history.
  HISTART.....Write history records beginning with record
              HISTART.  0 or too large => 1.
  HIEND.......Write history records ending with record HIEND.
              < HISTART => maximum history entry.
  PRTASK......Write only those history records which begin with
              the same n non-blank characters as are given in
              PRTASK.  This is not particularly reliable, but
              should select the messages of particular tasks.
              Thus, PRTASK = 'UV   ' should write all messages
              from UVLOD, UVMAP, UVSRT, etc. but skip those from
              IMLOD, MX, APCLN, etc.
