HELP SECTION

REVERSN
Type: Verb
Use:  REVERSN finds the maximum version number of a specified
      extension file type or all possible extension file types in a
      specified image or uv data set.  If any are found that were
      not in the header or if the header thought there were more than
      actually exist, messages will be generated.  In principle, there
      are 655 possible extension file types (26*26 - 21 forbidden)
      each with up to 46655 versions.  To save time, the routine quits
      when 200 versions in a row are not found (INEXT not blank) or
      when the first 15 versions are not found or 100 versions in a
      row are not found (INEXT blank).  Therefore, this verb will not
      recover, e.g. SN table version 512 when the next highest version
      number is 256.
Input adverbs:
  INNAME......Image name(name).       Standard defaults.
  INCLASS.....Image name(class).      Standard defaults.
  INSEQ.......Image name(seq. #).     0 => highest.
  INDISK......Disk drive # of image.  0 => any.
  INEXT.......Extension file type.    '  ' => loop over all
                                      legal pairs of characters
