Dear Arthur and All,

I got this from my colleague who has been using SAC for a
long time.

this has probably been answered already.

The value is not always "1.0000". On older versions of SAC, if you apply
"transfer" to multiple waveforms simultaneously, then all but the first
waveform are multiplied by the "scale" value in the sac header. I always
assumed this was a bug or half-implemented feature so I always tried to
avoid it!

For all transfer commands, there is a line printed to the screen:

Waveform multiplied by 1.000000 after deconvolution.

So far as I can tell it, this line serves no purpose. If any of you know
a reason to keep this printed output, please let me know.
