This task brings up a browser that can open and display any CASA table.  The tablename can be specified at startup, or any table can be loaded after the browser comes up.
    tablename -- Name of table file on disk (vis, calibration table, image)
                 default: none; example: tablename='ngc5921.ms'
    mightedit -- If True disable the filtering options (below) and allow
                 editing the table.  Warning: the GUI appears to ignore
                 whether the table tool is opened read-only - just be
                 aware that you should not edit filtered tables unless
                 you know what you are doing.
    sortlist  -- List of columns to sort by.
                 default: [] (none)
    taql      -- TaQL query string for prefiltering the table.
                 default: "" (none); example: taql="ANTENNA2 < 6"
    skipcols  -- Columns to NOT display.
                 default: [] (none); example: skipcols='feed1, feed2'    
    Some comments on using browsetable:
     Most often you will browse a measurement set.  Either specify the vis name
     as the tablename, or when the browser comes up,
            click on <file> (upper left), then click on <open table>

     left side to bring up a panel with the sub-tables listed (Fig 3.8), then
     choose (left-click) a table and View.
     Note that one useful feature is that you can Edit any table and its
     contents. Use the Edit tab (to the right of the file tab).  Be careful
     with this, and make a backup copy of the table before editing!
     Use the Close Tables and Exit option from the Files menu to quit the
