rdseed is IRIS DMC’s legacy utility for reading SEED volumes, the FDSN-approved file format for representing and distributing digital seismic data. This utility allows the user to read the contents of the SEED file and convert it to many different output formats, extracting the data, station information, or instrument responses from the file.
Version 5.2 introduces a number of fixes to the previous 5.1 release, which supports enhanced SAC Poles and Zeroes file annotations, support for running on Windows machines using Cygwin, support for double precision float data, and the addition to two columnar ASCII output formats.
