Commands to help find problems

VERBOSE Setting this to something $> 0$ will give messages to stderr as the program executes. Setting it to a big number will give more messages. VERBOSE 100 should output all messages. NOTE: If you set VERBOSE and you still don't get useful messages, try setting it first to 1, then to be absolutely sure of getting all messages, set VERBOSE in the scanps_defaults.dat file rather than on the command line.

TIME Setting this to a number $> 0$ will output various timings to stderr. Again, bigger numbers should give more messages.
