HELP SECTION

UVPOL

Task: This task converts a uv data set so that a complex polarization
   image and beam can be produced using data in which any of the Stokes'
   cross polarizations are measured.  With OPCODE = 'WEIG' (or any
   unrecognized) all weights are set to the average of the valid weights
   and invalid data is zeroed, whenever at least 1 of the
   cross-polarizations is valid.  OPCODE='DATA'causes any previously
   valid data to be set to (1,0) as well as modifying the weights.  Q
   and U images made from data processed with OPCODE='WEIG' will form
   the complex Stokes dirty image and Q and U images made from data
   processed with the 'DATA' option will be the complex beam.  This task
   is best used in conjunction with procedure CXPOLN (use RUN CXPOLN to
   load) which will make and properly normalize the complex polarization
   images.

   NOTE: this task also sets weights and values into the parallel hand
   observations.  It is not recommended to use the output for imaging
   RR, LL, Ipol, or Vpol.

Adverbs:
  INNAME.....Input UV file name (name).      Standard defaults.
  INCLASS....Input UV file name (class).     Standard defaults.
  INSEQ......Input UV file name (seq. #).    0 => highest.
  INDISK.....Disk drive # of input UV file.  0 => any.
  OUTNAME....Output UV file name (name).     Standard defaults.
  OUTCLASS...Output UV file name (class).    Standard defaults.
  OUTSEQ.....Output UV file name (seq. #).   0 => highest unique
  OUTDISK....Disk drive # of output UV file. 0 => highest with
             space for the file.
  OPCODE.....'WEIG' modifies the weights
             'DATA' modifies the data =>(1,0) and weights
             any other = 'WEIG'
