Type: Adverb (Real scalar)
Use: Limits the function to the AIPS number specified. The "AIPS
number" of a program is the (extended hexadecimal) number
attached to its name when it is executed (values from 1 to
Z). Thus, AIPS2 has AIPS number 2, AIPSBF has AIPS number 15,
and APCLNB has AIPS number 11. Interactive AIPS can have AIPS
numbers between 1 and NA, where NA is set locally. The Checker
program AIPSC for AIPSn uses AIPS number n. The batch
preparation program uses NA+1 and batch jobs use NA+1+NQ, where
NQ is the batch queue number.
Null value: 0
Null value means the current AIPS number.
-1 means all AIPS numbers.
