== Help on plotms task:

A plotter/interactive flagger for visibility data.

            Task for plotting and interacting with visibility data.  A variety
        of axes choices (including data column) along with MS selection and
        averaging options are provided for data selection.  Flag extension
        parameters are also available for flagging operations in the plotter.
        
            All of the provided parameters can also be set using the GUI once
        the application has been launched.  Additional and more specific
        operations are available through the GUI and/or through the plotms
        tool (pm).
        

    Keyword arguments:
    vis -- input visibility dataset
           default: ''
    xaxis, yaxis -- what to plot on the two axes
                    default: '' (uses PlotMS defaults/current set).
      >>> xaxis, yaxis expandable parameters
        xdatacolumn, ydatacolumn -- which data column to use for data axes
                                    default: '' (uses PlotMS default/current
                                    set).
