In order to process events more easily using SEISNET, EEV and MULPLT have been tightly integrated. When MULPLT is called from EEV, command f will plot the next event in the database, to go back to the same event in EEV, use quit. The event can be plotted with default parameters from EEV using PO. If PO has been selected, the f command in MULPLT multi trace mode will show the plot of the next event with default options. This is a fast way of plotting waveform files going through S-files in a database. The command poo does the same as po except that tyou start in single trace mode.
If several waveform files are available, the user will graphically be shown the files and can select one or several Files can optionally be displayed in alphabetical order (see MULPLT.DEF). If more than 75 files, several selection screens will be shown. A maximum of 1000 files can be used if the PO option has been used, all default channels will be used.
Plotting from EEV, a file with a list of waveform files can also be used as input. The filename must end with _LIST. The filename could be e.g. 2002-02-02-1310-20S.BER_LIST. The format is the filenr.lis format so the file can be created with DIRF. The _LIST file can be in local directory, WAV or any other directory as specified for normal waveform files. The intention with the list option is to be able group many waveform files in one group without the need to merge the files or list them all in the S-file. The limit of number of files in the _LIST files is 1000 and up to 10 _LIST files can be used for the same event. There is currently no automated facility to create and include _LIST files in the S-file.
