Hi,

I have encountered problems using evalresp when using the same routines
that have worked before. The RESP files from a new set of data have
transfer function coefficients of type B in the response coefficient
section which is causing a problem (B054F03 Transfer function type:
B).

The error I get is:


; Stage: 1]):
parse_coeff; parsing (FIR_ASYM), unexpected filter type ('B'),
skipping to next response now
No transfer function applied!
ERROR 2118: No transfer function applied.

In some other RESP files I had the transfer function type on this line
had been D, so I tried manually changing to this and it works, however
i'm not sure whether this is okay to do as I do not know what the
different function types mean.

Does anyone have any suggestions?

Thanks

Rob

    Are Robert Green's "Transfer function type: " letters "B" and "D"
    the ones described on page 72 of the SEED manual, as:

    3 A single character describing the type of stage:
    A — Laplace transform analog response, in rad/sec
    B — Analog response, in Hz
    C — Composite (currently undefined)
    D — Digital (Z - transform)

    ?
