SOURCE /VARIABLE

        [ASTRO\]SOURCE /VARIABLE VarName [/ALTERNATE] [/FLUX Fmin Fmax]

    Load  (a subset of) the (alternate) source file in a user structure (the
    structure will be global, and created if needed). /FLUX can be  used  to
    select a range of fluxes. In return, the user structure contains:

      S%N                 number of lines read and selected
      S%NAME[S%N]         source name (or names, appended with |)
      S%SYSTEM[S%N]       coordinate system
      S%EQUINOX[S%N]      equinox if coordinate system is Equatorial
      S%LAMBDA[S%N]       lambda coordinate (radians)
      S%BETA[S%N]         beta coordinate (radians)
      S%VTYPE[S%N]        velocity type
      S%VELOCITY[S%N]     velocity value
      S%REDSHIFT[S%N]     redshift value
      S%ITYPE[S%N]        intensity type (FLux, MAgnitude)
      S%INTENSITY[S%N]    intensity value
      S%SPINDEX[S%N]      spectral index
      S%MAGNITUDE[9,S%N]  9 magnitudes per source (see HELP CATALOG FORMAT)

    According  to  the current ASTRO\SET NAME tuning, the variable S%NAME[i]
    may contain one or all variant names of the source.

    Note that in order to see any change in the  source  file(s)  (new  file
    name,  updated file contents), the structure should be reloaded by call-
    ing again this command.
