My understanding was that wsac1 keeps all the header values from the most recent rsac1 call? However, in the following example, file tmp1.z lost all its event/station coordinates and related headers.
Any hints? Thanks. Steve Gao

My understanding was that wsac1 keeps all the header values from theNo. wsac1 and wsac2 write "minimum headers." wsac0 writes full headers

and includes updates to header values for a SAC file that had been read in
and then processed.
We found that the help command for the last couple of versions was
incomplete so did not explain and give examples for the various read and
write routines. That will be corrected in v101.5b -- coming soon.
WSAC1 writes evenly spaced files
WSAC2 writes unevenly spaced and spectral files
WSAC0 writes either format but has more comprehensive header files
than the other two
WSAC1 and WSAC2 write SAC files with a minimum header contains only those
variables needed to be able to read the file: B, E, DELTA, LEVEN, and
NPTS. For calls to WSAC0, If it is a new file, it requires a call to
subroutine NEWHDR supplemented by additional header variables to be set
using the SETXXX routines (see examples below). If it is writing to a file
that is based on one that had been read in previously in the program, one
should not call NEWHDR. Before writing such a file using WSAC0, SAC
updates the header variables such as DEPMAX and BAZ. As shown in the
examples below, the type of SAC data file that gets written depends on
header variables that must be set: IFTYPE and LEVEN. IFTYPE has the
