HELP SECTION

PANEL
Type: Task
  Converts the images created by HOLOG (which replaced HOLGR) into
  panel adjustments which may actually be applied to the antenna.

  The input image and mask image must have the same coordinates so
  that they align properly before and after application of the corners
  and increments.  The combination of BLC, TRC, XINC, and YINC must
  produce images 128 x 128 or 256 x 256 inside PANEL.
Adverbs:
  INNAME......First image name.  Usually V_DEV from HOLOG.
              Standard defaults.
  INCLASS.....First image class.    Standard defaults.
  INSEQ.......First image seq. #.   0 => highest.
  INDISK......Disk drive # for the first image.  0 => any.
  IN2NAME.....Mask image name.   Usually V_AMP from HOLOG.
              Standard defaults.
  IN2CLASS....Mask image class.    Standard defaults.
  IN2SEQ......Mask image seq. #.   0 => highest.
  IN2DISK.....Disk drive # for the first image.  0 => any.
  BLC.........Bottom left corner 0 -> 1
  TRC.........Top right corner   0 -> all
  XINC........X pixel increment
  YINC........Y pixel increment
  OUTFILE.....Text file with panel adjustments ' ' = 'HOME:panel.adj'
  DOPLOT......Which plots do you want?  0 -> 7 (all)
              Bit mask - add up all that you want
                 = 1   raw data - aips plot
                 = 2   adjustment map - aips plot
                 = 4   residual map - aips plot
  APARM.......(1) = 1 -> rigid panel, shift only
                  = 2 -> rigid panel, tilt and shift
                  = 3 -> flexible panel
              (2) Clip level in mask image - use only pixels in the
                  input image for which the mask image is > APARM(2)
              (3) mapsize in meters - used only if X axis not present
                  in header
              (4) Frequency in GHz to convert phase image - used only
                  when header units are degrees and FREQ axis is not
                  present in header
              (5) # pointings in 1 dimension - used only if the header
                  does not have the keyword VisUsed.
              (6) UNUSED
              (7) UNUSED
              (8) > 0 => Suppress gray-scale part of plots
              (9) > 0 => Suppress contour part of plots
              (10) > 0 => Suppress panel layout part of plots
  INLIST......' ' -> use focus langth and ring/panel structure of the
                     VLA
              'VLBA' -> use structure of vLBA antennas
              other -> text file containing on first non-comment line
                     the focal length in meters in free format and
                     on subsequent non comment lines the number of
                     panels in this ring and the inner and outer
                     radius of this ring (in meters).  Up to 10 rings
                     may be included.  Comment lines begin with a # or
                     a semi-colon.
  DOTV........> 0 => AIPS plots are done on the TV
  TVCHAN......Gray-scale TV channel to use for gray-scale AIPS plots
  GRCHAN......Graphics channel to use for labeling, contours, and
              panel layout parts of AIPS plots.  0 -> 1,2,3 resp.
