       pspolar  reads data values from files [or standard input] and generates
       PostScript code that will plot stations on focal mechanisms on  a  map.
       The PostScript code is written to standard output.

       Parameters are expected to be in the following columns

              station_code, azimuth, take-off angle, polarity

              - compression can be c,C,u,U,+
              - rarefaction can be d,D,r,R,-
              - not defined is anything else


       files  List one or more file-names. If no files are given, pspolar will
       read standard input.

       -J     Selects the map projection. Scale is  UNIT/degree,  1:xxxxx,  or
              width  in  UNIT  (upper case modifier).  UNIT is cm, inch, or m,
              depending on the MEASURE_UNIT setting in .gmtdefaults4, but this
              can be overridden on the command line by appending c, i, or m to
              the scale/width value.  For map height, max  dimension,  or  min
              dimension, append h, +, or - to the width, respectively.

              More details can be found in the psbasemap man pages.

       -R     xmin,  xmax,  ymin, and ymax specify the Region of interest. For
              geographic regions,  these  limits  correspond  to  west,  east,
              south,  and north and you may specify them in decimal degrees or
              in [+-]dd:mm[][W|E|S|N] format. Append r  if  lower  left
              and  upper  right map coordinates are given instead of wesn. The
              two shorthands  -Rg  -Rd  stand  for  global  domain  (0/360  or
              -180/+180  in longitude respectively, with -90/+90 in latitude).
              For calendar time coordinates you may either give relative  time
              (relative  to  the  selected  TIME_EPOCH  and  in  the  selected
              TIME_UNIT; append t to -JX|x), or  absolute  time  of  the  form
              [date]T[clock]  (append  T  to  -JX|x). At least one of date and
              clock must be present; the T is always required. The date string
              must  be  of  the form [-]yyyy[-mm[-dd]] (Gregorian calendar) or
              yyyy[-Www[-d]] (ISO week calendar), while the clock string  must
              be  of  the form hh:mm:ss[.xxx]. The use of delimiters and their
              type and positions must be as indicated  (however,  input/output
              and plotting formats are flexible).

              Maps the bubble at given longitude and latitude point.

       -Msize Sets  the  size of the beach ball to plot polarities in. Size is
              in inch (unless c, i, m, or p is appended).

              Selects symbol_type and symbol size.  Size is in inch (unless c,
              i,  m,  or  p  is  appended).   Choose  symbol type from st(a)r,
              (c)ircle, (d)iamond, (h)exagon,  (i)nverted  triangle,  (p)oint,
              (s)quare, (t)riangle, (x)cross.

              If -Efill is the same as -Ffill, use -e to outline.

              Outline  symbols in extensive quadrants using pen or the default
              pen (see -W).

       -Ffill Sets background color of the beach ball. Default is no fill.

              Outline the beach ball using pen or the default pen (see -W).

       -Gfill Selects filling of symbols for stations in  compressional  quad-
              rants.   Set  the  shade  (0-255)  or  color (r/g/b) [Default is

              Outline symbols in compressional  quadrants  using  pen  or  the
              default pen (see -W).

       -H     Input file(s) has Header record(s). Number of header records can
              be changed by editing your  .gmtdefaults4  file.  If  used,  GMT
              default  is  1  header record. Use -Hi if only input data should
              have header records [Default will write out  header  records  if
              the input data have them].

       -h     Use special format derived from HYPO71 output

       -K     More  PostScript code will be appended later [Default terminates
              the plot system].

       -N     Does NOT skip symbols that  fall  outside  map  border  [Default
              plots points inside border only].

       -O     Selects  Overlay  plot mode [Default initializes a new plot sys-

       -P     Selects Portrait plotting mode [GMT Default  is  Landscape,  see
              gmtdefaults to change this].

              Plots S polarity azimuth.
              S  polarity is in last column.  It may be a vector (V option) or
              a  segment.   Give  half-size,v_width,h_length,h_width  in  inch
              (unless  c, i, m, or p is appended).  [L] option is for outline.

       -Tangle/form/justify/fontsize in points
              To write station code. [Default is 0.0/0/5/12].

              Set pen color to write station code. Default  uses  the  default
              pen (see -W).

       -U     Draw  Unix System time stamp on plot. User may specify where the
              lower left corner of the stamp should fall on the page  relative
              to  lower  left corner of plot. Optionally, append a label, or c
              lute coordinates; the default (r) will reset plot origin.   Give
              c to center plot using current page size.

       -:     Toggles  between  (longitude,latitude)  and (latitude,longitude)
              input and/or output. [Default is (longitude,latitude)].   Append
              i  to  select  input  only  or o to select output only. [Default
              affects both].

       -c     Specifies the number of plot copies. [Default is 1].
