Sac-help,

How do you use the READ command for a folder of 400 sac files? I tried
the READ command with just one sac file and got an error:

SAC> READ 10014637.CI.CLC.BHE.sac
Error 1418: Header in disk file is out of date: 10014637.CI.CLC.BHE.sac
Header version number is incorrect.

I got this sac file from the STP site last week.

Thanks for your help,

Leah

    Leah.

    Which version of SAC ar you using ? Error number 1418 does not exist in
    the latest version. 1318 is this error message in the latest version.

    Also, what type machine are you working on and what machine type did you
    run STP to get the files on ? If the version of SAC you are using is
    old, you need to byte swap the files or get the latest version of SAC as
    it will read either "Sun" or "Linux" byte order files.

    Cheers,
    Brian

    I think i had a similar problem: it could be that
    the SAC file has a null or corrupted header. If the original file was a
    miniSEED and then converted to sac using RDSEED, RDseed will need a
    station dataless file to fill in the header values. It is either you don't
    have this file or the dataless file is corrupted.

    I Hope this helps but am not expert in SAC :(
