Thanks all, the issue is solved with WRITEHDR instead of WRITE HEADER, a
syntax error on my part.

Hello,
I have the following short piece of SAC code embedded in a shell script,
in which I use variables declared in the shell script to write SAC
parameters (e.g. sac file name, latitude, longitude). The issue is that,
while the script runs as expected, the header variables don't get written.
I also made an attempt of running this part as a macro by echo'ing these
lines and generating a macro but the result was exactly the same. Can I not
use shell variables with CHNHDR function? I am using SAC Version 101.6 on
Mac OS X 10.8.

SAC <<EOF
READTABLE FREE CONTENT XY tmp1.txt
WRITE $sacfile_name
READ $sacfile_name
CHNHDR EVLA $eqlat EVLO $eqlon
WRITE HEADER
QUIT
EOF

Many thanks !

Januka.
