FLUX
Type:  Adverb  (Real)
Use:   FLUX is a general adverb to express an intensity level associated
       with an image.  For radio maps the unit of FLUX is Jy/beam.  It
       is widely used as a lower limit for Cleaning or for components
       to be included in a source modelor other operation.
Null value:  NONE  (0 means 0)
       Consult the task help file for exact usage.
