HELP SECTION

OFLAG
Type:  Task
Use:   OFLAG interprets the bit pattern column and "warning score"
       columns of an on-line flag (OF) table to write a normal AIPS
       flag (FG) table.  At present this is only implemented for the
       VLA.

       FILLM by default acts as if FPARM=0; DOFLAG=3.  Note that OFLAG
       will count the bits that are set even if FPARM is 0 when
       samples are flagged due to DOFLAG or other bits.  This count is
       reported as "Found" unless it matches a count of "Flagged"
       because of each bit.
Adverbs:
  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.
  INVERS.....Extension file version #     0 => highest.
  FLAGVER....As a convenience to the user, a pre-existing flag table
             may be copied to OUTFGVER before the OF table is read.
             -1 => do not copy, 0 => copy highest pre-existing
             version.  Note: if OUTFGVER is pre-existing, no table is
             copied.
  OUTFGVER...Desired output FG table.  0 -> highest plus 1.
  DETIME.....OF tables have a single time for each record.  The FG
             table should have a time range for each flag.  That will
             be TIME - DETIME to TIME + DETIME where DETIME is in
             seconds and has a minimum value of 0.02.
  DOFLAG.....> 0 => generate flags whenever the score column(s) equal
                    or exceed DOFLAG
             <= 0 => ignore the score column(s)
             A warning score of 0 means no warning and is displayed
             with blanks by PRTOF.  Values of 1 - 3 are intended as
             mild warnings, values of 4 - 15 are more severe.  In
             practise, the VLA appears to issue scores of 0 and 4
             only.
  FPARM......If FPARM(i) > 0, then generate a flag if bit i of the
             bit-pattern column is set (1).  For the VLA the pattern
             has meanings
             Bit   Meaning
