[SAC-HELP] jpeg/gif output from sac

If I understand your question correctly, you can save plots you made in SAC to 
an EPS file.

1.  First you must save the plot to a file.  After you get the plot you like, enter

     bd sgf

Then repeat your plot command that had produced your display.  You will not see 
it, but it will produce a file in the directory you are in named f001.sgf.

You can then convert the .sgf file to a Postscript or EPS file using programs 
and scripts provided with SAC.  There is some discussion in utils/README_utils 
(in version 101.2).  There are also comments about how one can make a PDF file, 
if you have the right script.  Making an EPS file requires ghostscript.  Not 
needed to  make a simple postscript file.

To convert the file to JPG, PNG, etc., you need another program.  On a MAC that 
can be done in preview.

Let me know if that is not clear -- or if you had a different question.
