HELP SECTION

PFPL3
Type: Task
Use:  PFPL3 will write commands to a plot file for the execution
      of a ????? plot for an image.  The axes are not related to
      the coordinate axes of the input image.  The current
      version of the paraform plots a histogram of image
      intensities - but use IMEAN instead.
Adverbs:
  USERID......The ID of the owner of the image. Ignored
  INNAME......Image name (name).       Standard defaults.
  INCLASS.....Image name (class).      Standard defaults.
  INSEQ.......Image name (seq. #).     0 => highest.
  INDISK......Disk unit #.             0 => any.
  BLC.........Bottom Left Corner of image to contour.
              (0,0) means (1,1).
  TRC.........Top Right Corner of image to contour.
              (0,0) means top right corner of map.
  NBOXES......Number of histogram boxes (0 -> 10, < 2048)
  PIXRANGE....Clip at these intensities.
                 0,0 => map min, max.
  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.
              0 => 1.
