HELP SECTION

SPECURVE
Type: Adverb (Real array(3))
Use:  Spectral index curvature defined so that the flux density goes
      as

            log(T(f)/T(f0) = S * log(f/f0) + C(1) * (log(f/f0))^2
               + C(2) * (log(f/f0))^3 + C(3) * (log(f/f0))^4

      where S is SPECINDEX and C is SPECURVE, f0 is 1 GHz for
      simplicity, and all logs are base 10.  It is unlikely for you to
      have reliable values for SPECURV(3); SETJY uses only through
      SPECURVE(2) for the basic flux calibration sources.

Tasks:
  BPASS.....Computes spectral bandpass correction table.
            SPECURVE is used to remove curvature from the derived
            bandpass amplitude spectrum.  f0 is the frequency in the
            UV data set header and is independent of IF and channel.
  SOUSP.....Fits SPECINDX and SPECURVE to the fluxes in an SU table
            returning the values for input to BPASS.
