HELP SECTION

IN4NAME
Type: Adverb  (String*12)
Use:  Data files are stored in AIPS under logical names which
      have 4 parts: a 12-character "name" field, a 6-character
      "class" field, and a numeric "sequence number" field.
      IN4NAME is used to specify the "name" field for the 4th
      of the input data files used by a verb or task.  This
      adverb is handled by AIPS tasks and verbs under special
      "wildcard" rules.  These rules determine which test
      strings (e.g. image names in the catalog) match the
      user-specified string.  Except for '*', '?', and trailing
      blanks (when an * is present), all characters specified
      in IN4NAME must exactly match the corresponding characters
      in the test string.  A '?' in IN4NAME matches any single
      character in the test string.  An '*' in IN4NAME matches
      0 or more characters in the test string.  Thus, IN4NAME
      = '*' matches any test string.  IN4NAME = 'A?B*D' matches
      'ASBD', 'A BXYZD D', and 'A4B45678901D', but does not
      match 'ABCD' or 'ASBCDE'.
Null value:  '          '
      Taken as '*' unless the Help file for the specific task
      or verb states otherwise.
Verbs:
   CLR4NAME....Clears adverbs specifying the fourth input image
   GET4NAME....Fills 4th input image name parameters by catalog slot
               number.
   IM4HEAD.....Displays the image 4 header contents to terminal, message
               file.
   Q4HEADER....Verb to summarize the image 4 header: positions at
               center.
Tasks:
   COMB........Combines two images by a variety of mathematical
               methods.  The 4th image is of noise for the 2nd image.
   GREYS.......Plots images as contours over multi-level grey.  The
               4th image is for color blue.
   IMAGR.......Wide-field and/or wide-frequency Cleaning / imaging
               task.  The 4th image is of spectral curvature.
   KNTR........Make a contour/grey plot file from an image w multiple
               panels.  The 4th image is of polarization angle or U.
   MEDI........Combines four images by a variety of mathematical
               methods.
   OOSUB.......Subtracts/divides a model from/into a uv data base.
               The 4th image is of spectral curvature.
   PCNTR.......Generate plot file with contours plus polarization
               vectors.  The 4th image may be used for contours or grey
               scale.
   PDPLT.......Plots selected contents of PD tables.
   RMFIT.......Fits 1-dimensional polarization spectrum to Q/U cube.
               The 4th image is from FARS, either the phase or the
               imaginary part.
   TVSPC.......Display images and spectra from a cube interactively.
               The 4th image is an optional XYf cube to be displayed one
               f at a time.
   VBGLU.......Glues together data from multiple passes thru the VLBA
               correlator.
   WTSUM.......Task to do a a sum of images weighted by other images.
               The 4th image is of weights assigned to the 2nd image.
Procedures:

               The 4th image is of spectral curvature.
   OOCAL.......Determines antenna complex gain with frequency-dependent
               models.  The 4th image is of spectral curvature.
   OOFRING.....Fringe fit data to determine calibration with spectral
               index options.  The 4th image is of spectral curvature.
