DESCRIPTION

BOXSPEC is a MIRIAD task to save spectra from a vxy image in text files.  

PARAMETERS

in
This is the standard name for an input dataset -- usually an image, though sometimes either an image or visibility dataset or some foreign dataset format. Some tasks support multiple input datasets at a time (with wildcard supported) whereas others can handle only a single one at a time. There is generally no default input name.
chan
The channel range to plot, default is all channels.
aveop
If 'a' then the pixels enclosed in the x-y area specified are averaged. If 's' they are just summed. Default is 'a'
hann
Hanning smoothing length (an odd integer < 15) Default is no smoothing.
infile
List of locations and sizes for boxes in format
        NPOS
        IPOS  X  Y  XOFF  YOFF
where
        NPOS   is the number of boxes to read
        IPOS   is a number identifying each box, used in
               creating each output file name
        X,Y    is the pixel location of each box
        X,YOFF are the half sizes of the box in pixels so that
               each box is of size 2XOFF+1 in x and 2YOFF+1 in y.  
        X,YOFF are optional and default to 2
log
Save each spectrum in a file with root name LOG. The rest of the file name is formed from ``IPOS'' so that for example, for LOG=SPEC and IPOS=32 the output file name is SPEC32 Each file contains : channel, velocity or freq, intensity
