       pssegy reads a native (IEEE) format SEGY file and produces a PostScript
       image  of  the seismic data. The imagemask operator is used so that the
       seismic data are plotted as a 1-bit deep bitmap in a single (user-spec-
       ified)  color or gray shade, with a transparent background.  The bitmap
       resolution is taken from the current GMT defaults.  The seismic  traces
       may  be  plotted at their true locations using information in the trace
       headers (in which case order of the traces in the file is not  signifi-
        Standard  GMT  geometry routines are used so that in principle any map
       projection may be used, however it is likely that the  geographic  pro-
       jections will lead to unexpected results. Beware also that some parame-
       ters have non-standard meanings.  Note that  the  order  of  operations
       before the seismic data are plotted is deviation*[clip]([bias]+[normal-
       ize](sample value)). Deviation determines how far in the  plot  coordi-
       nates  a [normalized][biased][clipped] sample value of 1 plots from the
       trace location.  The SEGY file should be a disk image of the tape  for-
       mat  (ie  3200 byte text header, which is ignored, 400 byte binary reel
       header, and 240 byte header for each  trace)  with  samples  as  native
       real*4 (IEEE real on all the platforms to which I have access)

       -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).

       -D     gives the deviation in X units of the plot for 1.0 on the scaled

              Fill trace (variable area, defaults to filling positive). rgb or
              gray gives the color with which the imagemask is filled.

       -W     Draw wiggle trace.

        Must specify at least one of -W and -F.


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

       -L     Override  number  of  samples  per trace in reel header (program
              attempts to determine number of samples from each  trace  header
              if possible to allow for variable length traces).

       -M     Override  number  of  traces  specified  in reel header. Program
              detects end of file (relatively) gracefully, but this  parameter
              limits number of traces that the program attempts to read.

       -N     Normalize  trace  by  dividing  by rms amplitude over full trace

       -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].

       -S     Read trace locations from trace headers: header is either c  for
              CDP,  o  for  offset,  or b<num> to read a long starting at byte
              <num> in the header (first byte corresponds to  num=0).  Default
              has location given by trace number.

       -T     Plot  only  traces whose location corresponds to a list given in
              filename.  Order in which traces are listed is not significant -
              the entire space is checked for each trace.

       -U     Apply  reduction  velocity  by  shifting  traces upwards by red-
              vel/|offset|.  Negative  velocity  removes  existing  reduction.
              Units  should be consistent with offset in trace header and sam-
              ple interval.

       -V     Selects verbose mode, which will send progress reports to stderr
              [Default runs "silently"].

       -X     Multiply trace locations by scale before plotting.

       -Y     Override sample interval in reel header.

       -Z     Do not plot traces with zero rms amplitude.
