Hi, I am very new to sac (and a bit to seismology in general) and have started experimenting with sac. one of my header lines is: IDEP = JSOP I didn't find any reference for JSOP. Any ideas what that could be? Thanks
Has anyone had problems running SAC on Lion? I have, plenty... Lately, it has been running but I know it'll crash either when I want to plot anything using p. I get tons of unrequested comments as I am processing data, such as setcolor3:0 0 [default] This appears after almost every command. Then, it suddenly, and for no apparent reason, crashes, like this SAC> r curt curtnoint SAC> p2 SAC> r curt SAC> p sac(1081) malloc: *** error for object 0x1008107a0: incorrect checksum for freed objec… [more]
Jose, I got temporary access to a OS10.7.2 machine but had no problems. I had sent out a "beta" version of v101.5, and I think someone wrote back that it had worked okay for them on OS 10.7.2. Still, it is not working for you, so we need to figure out the reason. Please repeat the steps I do below and make a file of the screen interactions and send it to me. Important questions are the version of gcc you are using. (The one here is the defalt that comes with xcode -- which was put on … [more]

Hi; I'm running SAC on Mac OSX 10.7.2 and thought it installed correctly and seems to work OK, it crashes a lot. It crashes sometimes as in the example below after seemingly routine commands, like read and plot. Sometimes it crashes for a segmentation fault, without apparent motive, just when plot is invoked.

Hi, 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 ------------------------------------ nin1='tmp.z' call rsac1(nin1, x, npts, beg, delta, max, nerr) nin1='tmp1.z' call wsac1(nin1, x, npts, beg, delta, nerr)

Hello, I have converted velocity seismograms to displacement and I see that header GCARC are not the same. I haven't checked other headers at this time. In one case, the difference was ~7 degrees. Is there a reason for this? How do I mitigate this problem. Thanks for your time! Januka.
