      Numerous tasks support these values including PLOTR, STARS, and
      those tasks that plot the contents of STars files (CNTR, GREYS,
      KNTR, PCNTR, etc.)
Task:
  ALVAR.......Plots the Allan Variance statistic of a UV data set.
  ANBPL.......Plots and prints uv data converted to antenna based
              values.
  BLSUM.......Sums images over irregular sub-images, displays spectra.

              calibration.
  VPLOT.......Plots uv data and model from CC file
Verb:
