Hello all, I'm trying to compile a fortran77 program (getsnr.f) which includes some SAC routines:       PROGRAM getsnr C       INTEGER   npts, nerr       REAL*4    rftn, beg, del, snr       CHARACTER nom*50 C       CALL getarg (1,nom)       CALL rsac1 (nom,rftn,npts,beg,del,1,nerr)       CALL getfhv ('user0',snr,nerr) C       WRITE (6,*) snr C       END As you can see, the code is straightforward. Its only goal is to get the signal to noise ratio contained in the header of sac fil… [more]

Hi all, I work with SAC files for located events with OMARKER set to 0, and so the KZDATE and KZTIME are the origin time parameters, which I extract and use for data processing. Some of my SAC files have slightly different origin times (located using different numbers of stations), and I want to fix this so it's consistent across all the sac files for a particular event. And so that OMARKER is 0 and KZDATE and KZTIME reflects the absolute origin time. Any ideas on how to do this?

Dear, I have downloaded data from many events. I need to rotate and remove instrument response of all of them. I am using sac. 1) Some of the events have the components called BH1 and BH2 (or BH2 and BH3) instead of BHE and BHN. To rotate, I need to know which one is BHE and which one BHN. For that, I watched the header information looking for CMPAZ=90 - CMPINC=90 for East component BHE, and CMPAZ=0 - CMPINC=90 for North component BHN. The problem was that in some cases the numbers of the CM… [more]

I am just wondering what is this error about, since I never faced this issue on a different compiler (ifortran), and now I'm running the same script with same data on gfortran and with this error.

However, even when I use a different station with a different instrument response, I'm getting the same error. Again, this error is appearing in gfortran compiler. However, I never ran into this error on my previous compiler (i… [more]
