Hello, I'm using labview to adquire data coming from a seismic unit. I want to save data in SAC format and after to recover them. I would like to know if you can provide me some VI examples to write and read sac files. best regards, David Tapia

The Linux binaries distribution (sac-101.1-linux_x86.tar.gz) was built on CentOS 5. We found that when trying to open sac on a CentOS 4 machine, it bombed. IRIS has replaced the Linux binary distribution with one built on CentOS 4.5. This seems to work on CentOS 5 as well. Documentation (Readme and History) files have been amended to reflect this change.

Hello, How is it possible to perform operations in the frequency domain with sac? For instance, once the fft of two time series have been computed, how can I divide one spectra by the other?
