HELP SECTION

PRRFI
Task:  This task reads the output of VBRFI or VLBRF to make a list of
       all frequencies exceeding user specified cutoff values.  Up to
       100 such output files may be concatenated.  The output text files
       have the name xxdddddddd.txt where xx is the station name and
       dddddddd (yyyymmdd) is the date of the observation.
Adverbs:
  ANTENNAS...A list of the antennas to be included.  All 0 => all.
             If any number is negative then all antennas listed are NOT
             included and all others are.
  INFILE.....Text file with detailed RFI report.  The task initially
             tries to open the file as named.  If that fails, then
             it appends a BCOUNT to the name and tries again.  NOTE: if
             ECOUNT > BCOUNT, then this form of naming is required.
  BCOUNT.....Multiple files may be read if they are named INFILE with an
             integer appended from BCOUNT to ECOUNT.  It is a good idea to
             have the files be in increasing frequency order, but is not
             required (i.e. there is likely to be overlap on occasion).
             0 -> 1.
  ECOUNT.....Highest file number.  < BCOUNT -> BCOUNT.
  OUTFILE....Logical name (environment variable) of a directory to hold
             the print files.
  APARM......(1) Print if Pmean (autocorrlation mean) > APARM(1)
             (2) Print if Pmax  (autocorrelation max) > APARM(2)
             (3) Print if Rmean (AC rms mean) > APARM(3)
             (4) Print if Rmax  (AC rms max)  > APARM(4)
             (5) Print if Mmean (rms/mean mean) > APARM(5)
             (6) Print if Mmax  (rms/mean max)  > APARM(6)
             The task loops through all data separately for each of
             these, so you probably do not want to do many of them.
