HELP SECTION

INNAME
Type: Adverb  (String*12)
Use:  Data files are stored in AIPS under logical names which have 3
      parts: a 12-character "name" field, a 6-character "class" field,
      and a numeric "sequence number" field.  INNAME is used to specify
      the "name" field for the first (or only) input data file 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 INNAME must exactly match
      the corresponding characters in the test string.  A '?' in INNAME
      matches any single character in the test string.  An '*' in INNAME
      matches 0 or more characters in the test string.  Thus, INNAME
      = '*' matches any test string.  INNAME = 'A?B*D' matches 'ASBD',
      'A BXYZD D', and 'A3B45678901D', but does not match 'ABCD' or
     'ASBCDE'.
Null value:  '          '
      Taken as '*' unless the Help file for the specific task or verb
      states otherwise.
