HELP SECTION

OUTSEQ
Type: Adverb  (Real)
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.
      OUTSEQ is used to specify the "sequence number" field for
      the output data file from a verb or task.  It is used as
      an integer number between -1 and 9999.
Null values:  0 and -1
      -1 means to use the same sequence number as that found
      for the first input image (actual INSEQ with null value
      filled in).  0 means find the image having the highest
      sequence number which is consistent with the other output
      name adverb parameters and use a sequence number 1 higher.
      If there is no such image, then use OUTSEQ of 1.  The
      phrase "0 => highest unique", used a lot in Help files, is
      intended to be a code for this standard default behavior.
