HELP SECTION

MODSP
Type: TASK
Use: This task can be used to modify a pair of existing image cubes of
     either I/V or RR/LL polarization or create new ones.  The idea is
     to make spectral-line image cubes with or without RR/LL
     differences.
Adverbs:
  INNAME.....Input I or RR image name (name).     No default.
  INCLASS....Input I or RR image name (class).    Standard defaults.
  INSEQ......Input I or RR image name (seq. #).   0 => highest.
  INDISK.....Disk drive # of input I or RR image. 0 => any.
  IN2NAME....Input V or LL image name (name).     No default.
  IN2CLASS...Input V or LL image name (class).    Standard defaults.
  IN2SEQ.....Input V or LL image name (seq. #).   0 => highest.
  IN3DISK....Disk drive # of input Q image. 0 => any.
  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.
  BLC........Bottom right corner in input image of desired
             subimage.  Default is entire image.
  TRC........Top right corner in input image of desired
             subimage.  Default is entire image.
  FLUX.......Noise level to be added (in the units of the image)
  FACTOR.....Factor by which the original data is multiplied
             before it is added to the model.  0 => drop original
             data.
  INLIST.....Text file containing one line per source, giving

             RR, LL, X, Y, Maj, Min, PA, type, line center, width,
             Dlc/Dx, Dlc/Dy, Dw/Dx, Dw/Dy

             blank separated free format and trailing zeros FOLLOWING
             WIDTH may be omitted.  The resulting NGAUS will be the
             number of non-comment lines in INLIST.  Limit 9999.

             (1) The RR and LL brightness is in Jy/beam;
             (2) The component coordinates and size are X, Y, Maj
                 and Min are in pixels, PA in degrees;
             (3) Types are point, Gaussian, uniform disk, uniform
                 rectangle, optically thin sphere, and exponential for
                 code numbers 1 through 6.  Other values -> 2.
             (4) line center and width of line (FWHM) are in channels
             (5) line center and width may vary linearly in x and y
                 away from the stated values away from the component
                 center in channels/pixel

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

        If making a new image (INNAME blank with I polarization or
        INNAME and/or IN2NAME and/or IN3NAME blank with I, Q, U) use
  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
