VPUT: Verb-like puts adverbs from a task in files for VGETs
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 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.
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:
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. AIPS assigns no specific meaning to
any of these files, although some may be used by canned
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.
