HELP SECTION

MODAB
Type: TASK
Use: Creates spectral-image I/V cubes with absorption spectrum.
     Emission spectrum also available.
Adverbs:
  OUTNAME....Output image name (name).    Standard defaults.
             Outclasses are IMODEL, QMODEL, and UMODEL
  OUTSEQ.....Output image name (seq. #).  0 => highest unique.
  OUTDISK....Disk drive # of output image.  0 => highest
             number with sufficient space.
  FLUX.......Noise level to be added (in the units of the image)
  OPTYPE.....'EMIT' -> image of Gaussian described below as
                       "continuum" multiplied by spectrum making a
                       pure emission spectrum with no continuum
             other  -> image of Gaussian described below as
                       "continuum" multiplied by exp(-spectrum)
                       making absorption
  INLIST.....Text file containing one line per source, giving

             Tau, center chan 0, width in chans, L-R sep chans

             separation has L at higher frequency than R for positive
             separation

             blank separated free format.  The resulting NGAUS will be
             the number of non-comment lines in INLIST.  Limit 99.

             Blank lines and lines beginning with # or ; (semi-colon)
             are taken as comments

  COORDINA...RA (hours minutes seconds of time), declination (degrees,
             minutes, seconds of arc) for reference pixel (at image
             center).
  IMSIZE.....X, Y image size in pixels
  CELLSIZE...X, Y image spacing in arc sec
  APARM......(1) Reference frequency at first output plane in GHz
             (2) Increment in frequency in GHz
             (3) Number of frequency pixels
             (4) Continuum flux in Jy/beam
             (5) Continuum center X (pixels)
             (6) Continuum center Y (pixels)
