HELP SECTION

NPIECE
Type:  Adverb (Scalar)
Use:   Specifies the number of pieces of something.
Null value:  0 => 1.

Tasks:
   FITAB....Writes data in FITS format to tape and disk.  NPIECE is used
            to break uv files into several separate disk/tape files for
            reliability and space purposes.  NOTE: uv data are written
            as FITS tables and can be read only in 15APR99 and later.
   FITLD....Reads FITS files to load images or UV (IDI or UVFITS) data
            to disk.  NPIECE gives the maximum piece number to read
            from a file broken into "pieces".
   MORIF....Combines IFs or breaks spectral windows into multiple
            windows (IFs).  NPIECE controls the number of of IFs the
            current data are divided into or combined to.
   PCFIT....Finds delays and phases using a pulse-cal (PC) table.
            NPIECE sets how the IFs are combined to compute the delays.
   PRTTP....Prints the contents of data tapes and FITS disk files, using
            NPIECE to specify multiple disk files as pieces of a uv file
            as written by FITAB.
   SNSMO....Smooths and filters a calibration SN table.  NPIECE tells
            SNSMO how the IFs were combined in FRING's delay solutions.
   UVLOD....Read export or FITS data from a tape or disk.  NPIECE gives
            the maximum piece number to read  from a file broken into
            "pieces".
