HELP SECTION

TVPL
Type: Task
Use:  TVPL will find an extension file of type PL and use the graphics
      commands in that file to display the plot on the TV device.
Adverbs:
  INNAME......Image name(name).         Standard defaults.
  INCLASS.....Image name(class).        Standard defaults.
  INSEQ.......Image name(seq. #).       0 => highest.
  INDISK......Disk drive # of image.    0 => any.
  PLVER.......Version # of the PL file. 0 => highest version #
  GRCHAN......Graphics channel (1 - 7) to use for line drawing.
              0 => Use different graphics channels for the various
              parts of the plot - namely 1 for labeling, 2 for
              contours, 3 for polarization lines, and 4 for stars.
  TVCHAN......TV channel to display gray-scale portion of plot.
              0 => 1.
              NOTE: If the plot file contains 3-color plot commands,
              then TVCHAN should be low enough that channels TVCHAN+1
              and TVCHAN+2 exist (the usual XAS has only 16 multi-bit
              channels)
  TVCORN......TV pixel location (X,Y) where the bottom left-corner of
              the plot is to be placed. If either is zero, use the
              largest possible self scaling, else use pixel scaling
              with specified origin on the TV.
  DODARK......> 0 => use graphics channel 8 to plot black overlay
              lines whenever the plot files calls for dark vectors.
              <= 0 => plot "dark" vectors as bright lines in the
              colored graphics channels as if they were bright lines.
