AIPS HELP file for EDIT in 31DEC22
As of Tue Feb 7 14:32:17 2023
Type: Pseudoverb (ONLY statement on the input line)
Use: To cause POPS to enter the edit an existing procedure
mode and to specify the procedure name and line number.
Grammar: EDIT name line
where name is the procedure name and line is the first
line number to be edited. If line specifies an
existing line of code, then the line is deleted. If
line specifies a non-existant line number (e.g. 2.5),
then no lines are deleted. Lines typed in this mode
are inserted into the procedure until an ENDEDIT
command is given.
Example: > EDIT DUMMY 3
will replace line 3 of DUMMY with code1, insert new lines
of text code2 and code3 as new line numbers 4 and 5, and
renumber old lines 4 through ? to 6 through ?+2. The
prompt symbols sent by AIPS are shown in the example.
HINT: use the LIST name pseudoverb before each edit
session. NOTE that this pseudoverb must be the only
command on the input line.
