hyp2000_mgr concatenates the hypo.prt file with each record, can it be a new file instead

Victor H. at PRSN requests:

Is there any way to split the hypo out file to record single event files? i mean, in the *.hyp file the PRT command define the *.prt file with the locations (auto locations), the problem is that file becomes a monster as it save all the locations. Our system detects more than 500 in few days and that file grows out of control. 

This should be an option in hyp2000_mgr so we don't break any existing installations. I would expect that a time-stamp+qid named .prt file would be best

Today I created a new version of hyp2000_mgr (version 1.39), checked into svn as r5052, that supports a new option:

SeparatePRTdir dirname

Which will write out PRT files per event in this directory (which must already exist). Note this overrides anything in the hypoinverse command file being passed in on the hyp2000_mgr command line.

The len of the dirname should be less than 50 chars since this gets padded with the filename which is of the format: YYYYMMDDHHmmSS.QID.prt where time is the origin time from binder_ew and QID is the quake id padded with zeros.

From my run on the memphis test I see this:
