Use: To create one or more new verbs as numbered symbols. May
be used only when typing a procedure. This is used to
define pseudonyms for existing verbs. It may also be
used to add new verbs - which have been created by AIPS
programmers and added by them to AIPS - to your symbol
table without doing a RESTORE 0. NOTE that this only
works if you know the correct verb numbers to match those
defined for the system. These may be read using EXPLAIN
(or HELP) POPSDAT .

to them. The = sign and value are required. All verbs
Example: VERB TESTA = 900, TESTB = T2VERB
create new verbs TESTA and TESTB which are pseudonyms for
T1VERB and T2VERB.
