AIPS HELP file for VGET in 31DEC18
As of Mon Apr 23 7:34:02 2018
VGET: Verb-like gets adverbs from VPUT task save area
VNUMBER 1.0 35.0 VPUT/VGET file version number
TASK Task name
Version of task & INPUTS file
Task name may be inserted as an immediate argument
i.e VGET task or VGET 'task'. The adverb is then
ignored. The adverb TASK is set by VGET 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.
Type: Pseudoverb (but acts almost like a normal verb)
Use: VGET is the "verb" that lets a user recover task adverb values
from the last time the user executed a VPUT for that task and the
specified VPUT/VGET file version number. Up to 35 of these
files are available to the user for storage of task adverbs.
Only one set of values is stored for any given task for any given
VNUMBER, but an unlimited number of tasks may have their values
stored. Verbs may have their adverbs stored as well. The format
where is the task or verb name (min match applies, but to
all tasks and verbs, not just those in the VGET file). If
is omitted, the current contents of the adverb TASK are used.
The verb VGINDEX may be used to list those tasks for which
parameters have been saved and when they were saved.
VNUMBER......Version number of the VGET/VSAVE file. Values outside 1
- 35 are set to 1.
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, GO, and ABORT operations for that task.
VERSION......The version of the Inputs file used to decipher the
stored parameters. Should be the same as that used when
storing. A warning is issued if it is not. Use VGINDEX
to see which versions were used. See HELP VERSION for
