HELP SECTION

SUMSQ
Type: Task
Use:  SUMSQ sums the squared pixel values of a number of maps
      to form its output map.  SUMSQ, in combination with SUMIM
      and COMB, can be used to produce the average of a set of
      maps, along with the rms of the average.  The set of maps
      must all have the same INNAME and INCLASS and the INSEQ
      must be equally spaced.
Adverbs:
  INNAME......Name of first image(name).      Standard defaults.
  INCLASS.....Name of first image(class).     Standard defaults.
  INSEQ.......Name of first image(seq. #).    0 => highest.
  IN2SEQ......Final seq. # for image set.     No defaults.
  IN3SEQ......Change of seq # for set of images.  0 => 1.
              Thus, a DO LOOP over the seq. # is formed
                DO I = INSEQ, IN2SEQ, IN3SEQ
  INDISK......Disk drive # of all input images.  0 => any.
  OUTNAME.....Name of output image(name).    Standard defaults.
  OUTCLASS....Name of output image(class).   Standard defaults.
  OUTSEQ......Name of output image(seq. #).  0 => highest unique
  OUTDISK.....Disk drive # for output image. 0 => highest with
              space
  BLC.........Bottom left corner all input images
  TRC.........Top right corner all input images
  FACTOR.....Factor by which to multiply each squared map before
              adding. If FACTOR .EQ. 0.0  a factor of
              1/(# number of maps) will be used.
  DPARM(1)....If DPARM(1)>0 and FACTOR is greater than or equal
              to 0, then SQUARE ROOT [(scale factor)*(sum of
              squares)] is computed.
  BADDISK.....Disk(s) to avoid for the scratch files.
