HELP SECTION

VLALIST
Procedure:  This procedure is designed to print the SN table
       produced by CALIB using LISTR.
          Before attempting to use VLACALIB the RUN file
       VLAPROCS must be run to define the adverbs used and to
       read in the procedure.  This is done by:
       >RUN VLAPROCS
       and only needs be done once.
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.
  CALCODE....Calibrators may be selected on the basis of the
             calibrator code:
                  '    ' => any calibrator code selected
                            including non-calibrators.
                  '*   ' => any non blank code (cal. only)
                  '-CAL' => blank codes only (no calibrators)
                  anything else = calibrator code to select.
             NB: The CALCODE test is applied in addition to the
             other tests, i.e. CALSOUR and QUAL, in the
             selection of sources for which to determine
             solutions.
  TIMERANG...Time range of the data to be used. In order:
             Start day, hour, min. sec,
             end day, hour, min. sec. Days relative to ref.
             date.
  ANTENNAS...A list of the antennas to  have solutions
             determined. If any number is negative then all
             antennas listed  are NOT to be used to determine
             solutions and all others are. All 0 => use all.
  FREQID.....Frequency selection. Defaults to 1.  This is what
             is required in most continuum cases.
  OUTPRINT...Disk file name in which to save output.  ' ' => print
             to printer - When OUTPRINT is not blank, outputs are
             printed to a file.  Multiple uses of the same
             are concatenated.
