AIPS HELP file for DEFAULT in 31DEC22

DEFAULT: Verb-like sets adverbs of a task or verb to nulls
TASK Task name
Version of task & INPUTS file
Task name may be inserted as an immediate argument
i.e DEFAULT task or DEFAULT 'task'. The adverb is
then ignored. The adverb TASK is set by TGET 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: After a RESTORE 0 operation all adverb values are set to their
initial values. Most of these are 0 or blank, but many are +1.0
or -1.0 and a few are set to other values. DEFAULT is used to
set only the adverbs of a specific task or verb to those initial
values. Over time, this verb may encounter maintenance problems.
Check what it does carefully. The format is:
where is the task name (min match applies using all tasks
and verbs). If is omitted, the current contents of the
adverb TASK are used.
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. See HELP VERSION for details.
