PDPLT
Type:  Task
Use:   Plots selected data versus frequency from a PD (spectral
       polarization D term) table.
Adverbs:
  INNAME.....UV file name (name).       Standard defaults.
  INCLASS....UV file name (class).      Standard defaults.
  INSEQ......UV file name (seq. #).     0 => highest.
  INDISK.....Disk unit #.               0 => any.
  INEXT......'PD' is assumed for now
  INVERS.....Version number of table to plot, 0=>highest no.
  IN2NAME....UV file name (name).       Standard defaults.
                Fill the 2 adverbs only if you want to compare
                two different PD tables.
  IN2CLASS...UV file name (class).      Standard defaults.
  IN2SEQ.....UV file name (seq. #).     0 => highest.
  IN2DISK....Disk unit #.               0 => any.
  IN2VERS....Version number of table to plot, 0=>highest no.
  IN3NAME....UV file name (name).       Standard defaults.
                Fill the 3 adverbs only if you want to compare
                three different PD tables.
  IN3CLASS...UV file name (class).      Standard defaults.
  IN3SEQ.....UV file name (seq. #).     0 => highest.
  IN3DISK....Disk unit #.               0 => any.
  IN3VERS....Version number of table to plot, 0=>highest no.
  IN4NAME....UV file name (name).       Standard defaults.
                Fill the 4 adverbs only if you want to compare
                four different PD tables.
  IN4CLASS...UV file name (class).      Standard defaults.
  IN4SEQ.....UV file name (seq. #).     0 => highest.
  IN4DISK....Disk unit #.               0 => any.
  IN4VERS....Version number of table to plot, 0=>highest no.
  ANTENNAS...A list of the antennas to be plotted. All 0 => all.
             (The use of negative to omit is not done in this task.)
             These antenna numbers apply to the first data set.
  BPARM......A list of antenna numbers in the second data set where
             BPARM(i) corresponds to ANTENNAS(i).  If BPARM(1) is
             zero, ANTENNAS is used for the second data set.
  CPARM......A list of antenna numbers in the third data set where
             CPARM(i) corresponds to ANTENNAS(i).  If CPARM(1) is
             zero, ANTENNAS is used for the third data set.
  DPARM......A list of antenna numbers in the fourth data set where
             DPARM(i) corresponds to ANTENNAS(i).  If DPARM(1) is
             zero, ANTENNAS is used for the fourth data set.
  FREQID.....Frequency identifier to select (you may determine which is
             applicable from a PRTAB on the PD table)
  SUBARRAY...Limit display to specific subarray.  0 -> 1.
  STOKES.....The desired Stokes type of the displayed data:
             'R' = RCP, 'L' = LCP, 'RL' or 'RRLL' both RCP and LCP
             'X' = XLP, 'Y' = YLP, 'XY' or 'XXYY' both XLP and YLP
  BIF........First IF IF to plot
  EIF........Last IF to plot.
  OPTYPE.....Data to be plotted:
             1.  'PHAS' = phase,
             2.  'AMP ' = amplitude,
             3.  'A&P ' = both together
  PIXRANGE...If PIXR(1) < PIXR(2), all plots will be from  PIXR(1) to
             PIXR(2) (amplitude, phase, or in A&P, amplitude).
             Otherwise each plot will be self-scaling.
  APARM......(1) For A&P, if APARM(1) < APARM(2), use these to control
                 the phase plot range.
             (3) If > 0, plot frequency labels on the x axis
                 If the 2 files have different frequencies then this
                 option is forced as is APARM(4) and no divider is
                 plotted.
             (4) If > 0, omit IF dividers.  A divider without ticks
                 will still be plotted if there is a discontinuity in
                 the frequency axis.
  DO3COLOR...<= 0 => use line type 4 for all points plotted.
             > 0 => use 3-color to separate antennas
             > 1.5 => use 3-color to separate each antenna in ANTENNAS
                      but use the same color for BPARM(i), CPARM(i),
                      and DPARM(i) as is used for ANTENNAS(i).
  SYMBOL.....1: Plus sign (default)   12: Five pointed star
             2: Cross (X)             13: Star of David
             3: Circle                14: Seven-pointed star
             4: Box                   15: Eight-pointed star
             5: Triangle              16: Nine-pointed star
             6: Diamond               17: Ten-pointed star
             7: Pentagon              18: 11-pointed star
             8: Hexagon               19: 12-pointed star
             9: Septagon              20: 13-pointed star
             10: Octagon              21: 14-pointed star
             11: Nine-gon             22: Plus with gap
                                      23: vertical line
                                      24: Cross with gap
  FACTOR.....Scale plot symbols by FACTOR     0 -> 1.
             If FACTOR < 0, draw lines between the points and use
             abs(FACTOR) to scale the points plotted.  To have
             no points plotted, set -0.2 <=FACTOR < 0.
  LTYPE......Labelling type, see HELP LTYPE for details:
             1 = border, 2 = no ticks, 3 or 7 = standard, 4 or 8 =
             relative to ref. pixel, 5 or 9 = relative to subimage
             (BLC, TRC) center, 6 or 10 = pixels.  7-10 all labels
             other than tick numbers and axis type are omitted.
             Less than 0 is the same except that the plot file
             version number and create time are omitted.
             Add n * 100 to alter the metric scaling.
  DOTV.......> 0 => plot directly on the TV device, otherwise make a
             plot file for later display on one or more devices
             (including the TV if desired).
  GRCHAN.....Graphics channel (1 - 7) to use for line drawing.
             A value of 0 causes more than one graphics channel to be
             used.
  XYRATIO....Scale the X axis longer than the Y by XYRATIO.
                If DOTV >  0, 0 -> fit to the TV window
                If DOTV <= 0, 0 -> 1.
