ASSOCIATE

        LAS\ASSOCIATE ReservedName Array
        LAS\ASSOCIATE FreeName Array /BAD BadValue [/UNIT UnitString]
        LAS\ASSOCIATE AnyName /DELETE

    This commands adds or deletes an Associated Array to/from the R observa-
    tion.

    The first form allows to add a reserved Associated Array. With such  ar-
    rays,  the metadata like the bad value or the unit are restricted by the
    Associated Arrays specifications: they can not be customized.

    The second form allows to add a free (non-reserved) Associated Array. In
    this case, the bad value is mandatory (no default). The unit is optional
    and defaults to a blank string. The Associated Array name is  free,  ex-
    cept  that  it  must use symbols allowed in Sic variable names (i.e. al-
    phanumeric characters).

    The input array type and kind will be reused  as  the  Associated  Array
    type  and kind. Its first dimension must be of size RY (i.e. same number
    of channels as R). A second dimension is allowed. The array argument can
    refer to a subset of a bigger array, as long as this subset respects the
    above rules.

    The third form will delete the named array from the section (no error if
    no  such array). If there are no more arrays in the section, the section
    is disabled.
