sobsolete -- STSDAS tasks that have been replaced, or are no longer needed

INTRODUCTION

The `stsdas.sobsolete' package contains several tasks that have fallen into disuse, or whose functionality has been replaced by new tasks. While these tasks will no longer be supported, they have been placed in `sobsolete' to give users a chance to switch to the replacement tasks. Generally, tasks in this package will disappear from STSDAS completely with the next major release (i.e., V2.2).

A list of the obsolete tasks, the new task which supercedes them, and a few notes regarding their retirement, is given in Table 1 below.

Notes:


1) These tasks have been deemed no longer useful or necessary.
2) These tasks have been broken for many years and consequently 
   they have been hidden from use. History of these tasks is 
   unknown.
3) Tasks in immatch correctly conserve flux in the registration of the 
   images.
4) These tasks were used to send images to the CELCO film recorder.  This
   machine has since been retired, and the tasks are of limited use to
   users otherwise.
