HELP SECTION

IMDIST
Type: Verb
Use: IMDIST uses two pixel coordinates from one or two images to
     determine the spherical angular distance between them.  It
     displays the distance, the position angle and the RA and Dec
     shifts given by (RA2 - RA1) * COS(DEC1), (DEC2 - DEC1).
Adverbs (input):
      First image pixel
  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.
  PIXXY.......(X,Y,...) pixel location in image.  NOT zero
              on the X and Y axes anyway.
      Second image pixel
  IN2NAME.....Image name(name).        ' ' -> use 1st image
  IN2CLASS....Image name(class).       ' ' -> use 1st image
  IN2SEQ......Image name(seq. #).      0 -> use 1st image
  IN2DISK.....Disk drive # of image.   0 -> any.
  PIX2XY......(X,Y,...) pixel location in image.  NOT zero
              on the X and Y axes anyway.
Adverbs (output):
  DIST........Distance between pixels in degrees.
