# obspy.core.trace.Trace.write¶

Trace.write(filename, format=None, **kwargs)[source]

Save current trace into a file.

Parameters: filename (str) The name of the file to write. format (str, optional) The format of the file to write. See obspy.core.stream.Stream.write() method for possible formats. If format is set to None it will be deduced from file extension, whenever possible. kwargs Additional keyword arguments passed to the underlying waveform writer method.

Example

>>> tr = Trace()
>>> tr.write("out.mseed", format="MSEED")


The format argument can be omitted, and the file format will be deduced from file extension, whenever possible.

>>> tr.write("out.mseed")
