TPUT: Verb-like puts adverbs from a task in file for TGETs

INPUTS

TASK                               Task name
                                   Version of task & INPUTS file
VERSION
          Task name may be inserted as an immediate argument
          i.e TGET task or TGET 'task'.  The adverb is then
          ignored.  The adverb TASK is set by TPUT to the full
          task name on output.  This eliminates the need to
          type the task name on subsequent INP, INPUTS, and GO
          operations so long as you want this particular task.

HELP SECTION

TPUT
Type:  Pseudoverb   (but acts almost like a normal verb)
Use:   Each time a task is caused to execute (via the verb GO),
       the adverb values sent to the task are saved in a special
       Task parameter file.  Only one set of values is stored
       for any given task, but an unlimited number of tasks may
       have their values stored.  The file belongs to the user
       (by login number) and may be used with any of the inter-
       active AIPS.  Batch AIPS programs use their own task
       parameter files.  TPUT is the verb which allows the user
       to put a task's adverb values into the file replacing
       those of the most recent execution of the task.  The
       format is:

                  TPUT   name

       where  is the task name (min match applies, but to
       all all tasks and verbs, not just those in the TGET
       file).  If  is omitted, the current contents of
       the adverb TASK are used.  The verb TGINDEX may be used
       to list those tasks for which parameters have been saved
       and when they were saved.
Adverbs:
  TASK.........Desired task name.  Used only if no immediate
               argument is given.  The full Task name is
               inserted in TASK on output, whether or not an
               immediate argument was used.  This allows one
               to avoid retyping the task name on subsequent
               INP, INPUTS and GO operations for that task.
  VERSION......The version of the INPUTS file to be used in
               setting the parameters into the parameter
               save area.  See HELP VERSION for details.
