       gschem - gEDA/gaf Schematic Capture


       gschem [OPTION ...] [--] [FILE ...]


       gschem  is a schematic capture application, and is part of the gEDA (GPL Electronic Design
       Automation) toolset.  It is used to draw electronic schematics, which describe the logical
       structure  of  an circuit.  Schematics are made up of symbols, which represent the various
       components in the circuit, and are obtained either from a standard library or  created  by
       the user.  The connections between components represented by nets (wires).  Schematics may
       be printed to a PostScript file  for  printing  or  further  conversion  to  other  output
       formats.  Output to various image formats is also supported.

       gschem can also be used for editing symbols for use in schematics.


       -q, --quiet
               Quiet mode. Turn off all warnings/notes/messages.

       -v, --verbose
               Verbose mode.  Output all diagnostic information.

       -r, --config-file=FILE
               Specify an additional configuration file.  Normally gschem searches for the system
               configuration file, then `$HOME/.gEDA/gschemrc', and finally for a `gschemrc' file
               in  the  current  working  directory.   This  option allows the user to specify an
               additional rc file which is read after all the other rc files have been are read.

               Prepend DIRECTORY to the list of directories to be searched for Scheme files.

       -s FILE Specify a Scheme script to be executed at startup.

       -c EXPR Specify a Scheme expression to be evaluated at startup.

       -o, --output=FILE
               Specify a filename for PostScript output.  This command line  argument  is  useful
               when  running  gschem  from a shell script and with a Scheme script.  The filename
               can be changed through the print dialog box.

       -p      Automatically place the window. This may be useful  if  running  gschem  from  the
               command line and generating output.

       -h, --help
               Print a help message.

       -V, --version
               Print gschem version information.

       --      Treat  all  remaining arguments as schematic or symbol filenames.  Use this if you
               have a schematic or symbol filename which begins with `-'.


       Optionally, schematic or symbol FILEs may be specified on the command line.  Any schematic
       or symbols specified are loaded at startup as separate documents in the schematic editor.

       If no FILEs are specified, a blank schematic is created for editing.


               specifies  the  search  directory  for  Scheme  and  rc  files.   The  default  is

               specifies the search directory for rc files.  The default is `$GEDADATA'.
