VPUT: Verb-like puts adverbs from a task in files for VGETs

INPUTS

VNUMBER         1.0         35.0   VPUT/VGET file version number
TASK                               Task name
                                   Version of task & INPUTS file
VERSION
          Task name may be inserted as an immediate argument
          i.e VPUT task or VPUT 'task'.  The adverb is then
          ignored.  The adverb TASK is set by VPUT 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.

HELP SECTION

VPUT
Type:  Pseudoverb   (but acts almost like a normal verb)
Use:   VPUT is the "verb" that lets a user save task adverb values in
       a user-managed file under a 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 is:

                  VPUT   name

       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.
Adverbs:
  VNUMBER......Version number of the VGET/VSAVE file.  Values outside 1
               - 35 are set to 1.  AIPS assigns no specific meaning to
               any of these files, although some may be used by canned
               procedures.
  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 and GO operations for that task.
  VERSION......The version of the INPUTS file to be used in setting the
               parameters into the parameter save area.  See HELP
               VERSION for details.
