Perhaps this is a known problem. I am using an older version of SAC

SEISMIC ANALYSIS CODE [11/11/2013 (Version 101.6a)]

on an Intel Mac running Catalina. I am trying to use OHPF for the first time in a long time. I start it up,

ohpf hpf.1

make some number of picks (I have tried between 1 and 10 picks I think), and then close it and find no picks in the file:

SAC> chpf
SAC> cat hpf.1
10

Is the only solution to get an up to date version of SAC? Or is there a fix?

Thanks.

    Dear Cliff -

    You might have forgotten to type G or H to ask PPK to write the picks to the HYPO file.

    H did it for me (but with SAC/BRIS).

      Hi George. G did the trick!

      Note that I can't find this anywhere in the SAC documentation (I checked both in SAC's help and at IRIS).

      Thanks for the rescue.

      Cliff

        Dear Cliff -

        See page 26 / Table 4.1 of the SAC book for the list of PPK cursor mode commands, and for the description of the waveform duration algorithm.
