      Numerous tasks support these values including PLOTR, STARS, and
      those tasks that plot the contents of STars files (CNTR, GREYS,
      KNTR, PCNTR, etc.)
Task:
  ALVAR.......Plots the Allan Variance statistic of a UV data set.
  ANBPL.......Plots and prints uv data converted to antenna based
              values.
  BLSUM.......Sums images over irregular sub-images, displays spectra.
  BPPLT.......Plots selected contents of bandpass (BP) files versus time.
  CAPLT.......Plots closure amplitude and model from CC file.
  CLOSE.......Plots closure phase or amplitude spectra averaged over
              closures.
  CLPLT.......Plots closure phases as a function of time.
  ELFIT.......Plots/fits selected contents of SN, TY, SY, PC or CL
              files.
  GAL.........Determine parameters from a velocity field.
  IRING.......Integrates intensity / flux in rings / ellipses.
  MFPRT.......Prints MF tables in a format needed by modelling
              software.  SYMBOL is put in a STARS format file.
  PDPLT.......Plots selected contents of PD tables.
  PRTAN.......Prints the contents of the ANtenna extension file.
  SNBLP.......Plots selected contents of SN or CL files on a baseline
              basis.
  SNFIT.......Fits parabola to SN amplitudes and plots result.
  SNIFS.......Plots selected contents of SN, TY, SY, PC or CL files by
              IF.
  SNPLT.......Plots selected contents of SN, SY, TY, PC or CL files
              versus time
  SOUSP.......Fits source spectral index from SU table or adverbs.
  SYVSN.......Plots selected SY/TY data with SN solution values versus
              time.
  TEPLT.......Plots selected contents of TE (TECOR) parameter tables.
  UVHOL.......Prints holography data from a UV data base with
              calibration.
  VPLOT.......Plots uv data and model from CC file
Verb:
  COSTAR......Plots a symbol at given position on top of a TV image
