PSEUDOVB
Type:  Pseudoverb
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.
