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!
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, IMAGR, APCLN, etc.
