Dear Sir / Madam

I would like to ask you for help in the following matter.
I have just recently started to use SAC for my PhD research. One of the purposes I need the SAC for is to analyze outputs from my numerical models and compare them with field observations. The data from my models have usually form of a time-series table (xls, txt or csv), consisting of a column of pairs time - displacement (in particular direction). Is there some simple way (utility or so) for converting these data into SAC?

Thank you for your help

Looking forward to hearing from you

Yours faithfully

Lukas Janku

    Dear Lukas Janku -

    CSV is the most suitable format. If your values are separated with blanks (even if they end with a comma — the comma is optional, the blanks separate values), you can use the READTABLE command to read them in. For example,

    READTABLE CONTENT XY FREE /tmp/dat.txt

    would read in values such as,

    1, -10,
    2, -8,
    3, 5,
    etc.

    See HELP READTABLE for more extensive info.
