Hello all:

I just joined the list, but have been a SAC user for a long time.

I have installed SAC2000 and use it along with my Fortran programs to do
several tasks. The problem is that I am worry SAC2000 will only work in
32bit machines and my lab will soon migrate to 64bit ones. Is there a
binary for the 64bit computers which I could get right now?

I asked the author of SAC about that and he asked me to post this
question in this forum. Hope you can help me.

    Hello,

    I recently got a new post and ended up having to switch everything I have
    from UNIX to Linux, and it´s a 64-bit system that I´m on. I obtained the
    standard Linux version of SAC which in itself works just fine. But the thing
    to watch out for is Fortran programs that use the SAC libraries (e.g.
    programs that use utilities like rsac,wsac etc.); they have a compatibility
    problem with 64-bit architecture. The solution is fortunately simple: when
    compiling anything that uses SAC utilities, you´ll need to add the flag "
    -m32 " to your f77/g77 command, then it´ll recognise and account for 32-bit
    architecture in a 64-bit system. I think there´s some information about -m32
    in f77/g77 documentation.

    Hope this helps,

    Fiona.
