HELP SECTION

NPOINTS
Type: Adverb   (scalar)
Use:  To specify a number of points of some sort (such as pixels on an
      axis).
Null value:  0
Verbs:
   TVLUT.........Verb which modifies the transfer function of the image.
                 NPOINTS gives the number of vertices inside the
                 piecewise linear LUT function.
Tasks:
   FILLR.........Reads old VLA on-line-system tapes into AIPS.  NPOINTS
                 gives the maximum number of samples in 1000's.
   MCUBE.........Collects n-dimensional images into n+1-dimensional
                 image.  NPOINTS is the number of pixels on the new
                 axis.
   MULIF.........Change number of IFs in output.  NPOINTS is the number
                 of output IFs (spectral windows).
   SPECR.........Spectral regridding task for UV data.  NPOINTS is the
                 number of channels in the output data set.
   TVHLD.........Interactive task to load an image to the TV with
                 histogram equalization.  NPOINTS is the number of
                 intensity bins in the histogram.
   UVHOL.........Prints holography data from a UV data base with
                 calibration.  NPOINTS is the number of samples to keep
                 at the end of each pointing.
   UVLOD.........Read export or FITS data from a tape or disk.  NPOINTS
                 is the maximum number of visibilities in 1000's.
   VLBIN.........Task to read VLBI data from an NRAO/MPI MkII correlator.
                 NPOINTS is the max number of visibilities in 1000's.
   XSMTH.........Smooth data along the x axis.  NPOINTS is the number
                 of X pixels on output.
