AIPS HELP file for PSEUDOVB in 31DEC18
As of Wed Jul 18 23:50:02 2018
Use: To create one or more new pseudoverbs as numbered
symbols. May be used only when typing a procedure. This
is used to define pseudonyms for existing pseudoverbs.
It may also be used to add new pseudoverbs - which have
been created by AIPS programmers and added by them to
AIPS - to your symbol table without doing a RESTORE 0.
NOTE that this only works if you know the correct
pseudoverb numbers to match those defined for the system.
These may be read using EXPLAIN (or HELP) POPSDAT .
Grammar: PSEUDOVRB name1 = v1 , name2 = v2 , ...
where the namei are the names of the new pseudoverbs and
the vi are the pseudoverb numbers or the name of another
pseudoerb to be assigned to them. The = sign and value
are required. All pseudoverbs are global and are
executed as they are encoiuntered by the compiler (rather
than after the whole line is compiled).
Example: PSEUDOVRB FLOAT = 101, CHARACTR = STRING
create new pseudoverbs FLOAT and CHARACTR which are
pseudonyms for SCALAR and STRING.
