Hi, I am learning SAC, when I input 'plot', the sentence of ' X11 Screen does not exist' shows up and SAC will quit automatically. May I know how to solve the problem? I am using the remote window connecting to the Linux system, does it matter the ' plot' command and X11 screen? I appreciate your help. Thanks Tracy

We have a script that refuses to work in version 101.6, though before that it worked fine. The script computes the decimation factor in order to decimate from delta 0.025 to 0.1s; here is its echo to the screen: setbb new 0.1 r AU.WR0..BHZ rmean evaluate to old &AU.WR0..BHZ,delta ==> evaluate to old 0.025 evaluate to factor %new / %old ==> evaluate to factor 4 decimate %factor ==> decimate 4 ERROR interpreting command: decimate %factor ILLEGAL OPTION: ^ It does no...

Nasir, I see your Sac files the HHN file is corrupt, but it is not important. To pass from 100 sps to 20 sps, you must to use the decimate command, > r ISBA_PK_HHE > decimate 5 > w ISBA_PK_HHE_20 Give a look in decimate command help, factor 5 means divide 100sps/5=20 sps HTH, Milton P.

Hello I need to divide each sample to the respective lapse time. For instance I need to evaluate log10(A/T). For example : mtw t0 -2 30 div time log10 but the problem is that I could not find "time" variable or blackboard which refers to each sample time. Thank you, Reza

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 ... [more]

I have downloaded data in PASSCAL SEGY format, one file per channel. However, when I try to read in one of the files with the command 'read SEGY {filename}, , I receive an error message "ERROR 1340: data points outside allowed range contained in file {file name}". What does this mean and how do I read this data in? Douglas R.
