HELP SECTION

PEEK
Type:  Task

             Days relative to reference date. all 0 -> 0,24hour
  ANTENNAS...A list of the antennas to fit.
  APARM......Control parameters
             (1) start MJAD to include 0 -> 0
             (2) end MJAD to include   0 -> large
             (3,4) Limit to elevation range (min,max)
                  0 -> 7, 122 (degrees)
             (5) Minimum amplitude  0 => 0.01
             (6) Maximum wind speed  0 -> 5 m/sec
             (7,8) Limit to normalized beamwidth range (min,max)
                     0 -> 0.95,1.15
             (9) Filtered change file gets a line when the absolute
                 value of the change > APARM(9)  (0 -> 0.1)
             (10) and the abs (change) * APARM(10) * sigma
                 (parameter)    (0 -> 3.0)
  BAND.......Restrict to band code ' ' => 'X'
             Allowed codes P, L, S, C, X, U, K, A, Q
  FPARM......If FPARM(i) > 0, then fit for the parameter

                 (11) Refrac
             All 0 => fit 1, 2, 3, 4, 11
                 (12) > 0 -> attach tilt to antenna, else to pad
                 (16) > 0 -> suppress output of gnuplot file
                             (gnuplot made obsolete by AIPS plots)
                 (17) > 0 -> suppress output of ant.dat files
                             If (16) <= 0, (17) is forced to 0
                 (18) > 0 -> suppress output of changes file
                             May only want to keep the filtered
                             changes file.
                 (19) > 0 -> suppress output of filtered changes file
  PRTLEV.....Print level used for debugging problems.  0 normal.
  ASDMFILE...Use both ASDMF(1) and ASDMF(2) to specify the full path
             to the .PNT file (but leave off the .PNT which the task
             will append).  This could be the same values for ASDMF as
             used by BDFLIST and BDF2AIPS if you put the .PNT file in
             the same directory as the top directory of the SDM/BDF
             files.
  DOPLOT.....> 0 => make AIPS plot files of the pointing errors before
                    and after fit.
  DOTV.......> 0 => make the plot(s) on the TV, else make plot files.
  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.

                 Default is 2, the choices are
                 1: Plus sign     12: Five pointed star
