DOALIGN
Type:  Adverb (Logical)
Use:   Controls how two or more maps are aligned by various tasks.  If
       DOALIGN positive (actually >= 0.1), then the images are aligned
       by their coordinates and are required to have the same axis
       increments, types, and rotations.  If DOALIGN is zero (actually
       -0.1 < DOALIGN < 0.1), then the images are aligned by their
       coordinates at the bottom left corner (computed linearly without
       regard for rotation), but no other tests are made.  If DOALIGN is
       -1 (actually <= -0.1 and >= -1.5), then the images are aligned by
       offset from their reference pixels and no axis parameter tests
       are made.  If DOALIGN = -2 (actually < -1.5), the images are
       aligned at pixel (1,1,...) and the headers are ignored --- which
       can lead to bad output headers of course.
Null value:  true (1).
