TABLE

        TABLE

    This  task produces a GILDAS Table from a  formatted  listing.   The ta-
    ble  format  is recommended if you intend to use your data more  than  a
    few (4) times, i.e.  in virtually any case.  Moreover, the table  format
    can  be  processed  by  more  programs  than the list-directed one.  You
    should set the number of columns exactly, and the number of lines  to  0
    to allow the program to compute the table size, or to the real number of
    lines in your formatted file.  Never set the  number  of  lines  or  the
    number of columns larger than really present or the program will crash.

    Task LIST does the reverse process.
