HELP SECTION

TELFLM
Type: Procedure (built in)
Use:  To specify to real-time FILLM what to do with the current uv
      files.  An immediate argument of 0 implies append incoming data
      ("FEW"), 1 implies make new files on each scan ("MANY"), 2 implies
      stop filling the current ones and make new on the next scan
      ("BREAK"), and 3 implies close the current files and stop now
      ("STOP").  Does this with a TELL operation which will be queued
      (see it with STQUEUE) until FILLM can use it.  The immediate
      argument is passed as APARM(1).
Adverbs:
    TIMERANGE....Time range to include.
    APARM........(1) >0 => new file for each scan, <0 => concatenate
                 files read in if similar enough. 0 => defaults to -1
                 for off-line FILLM, and to 1 for on-line FILLM
Tasks:
    FILLM........Fills uv database(s) from VLA data, in this case in
                 real time as the data are taken.
