HELP SECTION

TVBLINK
Type:  Verb
Use:   To compare images on 2 planes of the TV by blinking them.
       While blinking: the cursor X position controls the blink rate,
       the cursor Y position controls the proportion of time spent on
       each plane, button D causes the verb to quit, and Buttons A, B,
       and C cause the blinking to stop and an interactive image
       enhancement (just like TVTRANSF) to begin.  Button A selects
       channel A and button B selects channel B to be enhanced.
       Button C specifies that both channels are to be enhanced at the
       same time (on TVs which support split screen).  During the
       enhancement, the cursor X position controls the intercept and
       the cursor Y position controls the slope of the (linear)
       transfer function.  Buttons A and B may be used to select
       enhancement of channels A and B, resp.  Button C will switch
       the sign of the slope and Button D will return the verb to the
       blinking mode.  Instructions to remind you of these things will
       appear on your terminal.
Adverbs:
  TVCHAN.....Selects TV channel to be "channel A"
  TV2CHAN....Selects TV channel to be "channel B"
             If either are out of range, 1 and 2 are used.  On TVs
             which support split screen, channel A will appear on the
             left (or top) half during enhancement functions.
