       gsymcheck - gEDA/gaf Symbol Checker


       gsymcheck [-h] [-v] [-q] symbol1 [... symbolN]


       gsymcheck  is  a  symbol  checker  for  gEDA/gaf.  Here is a list of checks that gsymcheck

       · Checks for graphical= attribute (if present does varied tests)

       · Checks for the device= attribute

       · Checks for various other  missing  attributes  (pinlabel,  pintype,  pinseq,  footprint,

       · Checks to make sure that the active pin end is on the 100 unit grid.

       · Checks the uses of the various attributes (duplicates, incorrect syntax, invalid values,

       · Checks for obsolete, old, and forbidden attributes

       · Checks for any nets or buses within a symbol

       · Checks for any other connections within a symbol

       · Checks to make sure the number of pins is the correct number


       gsymcheck accepts the following options:

       -q      Quiet mode on.  This mode turns off all warnings/notes/messages. (optional)

       -v      Verbose mode 1.  This mode will show all error messages (optional)

       -vv     Verbose mode 2.  This mode will show all error and warning messages (optional)

       -vvv    Verbose mode 2.  This mode  will  show  all  error,  warning,  and  info  messages

       -h      Usage summary / gsymcheck help

       symbol1 [... symbolN]
               At  least  one  symbol  file must be specified.  If multiple symbols are specified
               then they are sequentially  read  in  and  checked.   It  is  important  that  the
               schematic(s) follow all the options (ie last).


       Here are some examples on how to run gsymcheck:

       To get usage information just run:


       To actually check a symbol with just error counts, run:

            gsymcheck symbolfilename.sym

       To get the actuall error messages, run:

            gsymcheck -v symbolfilename.sym

       To see all the error messages and warnings, run:

            gsymcheck -vv symbolfilename.sym

       To see all the error messages, warnings, and parse info, run:

            gsymcheck -vvv symbolfilename.sym


       gsymcheck respects the following environment variable:

               specifies  where the various required scheme and rc files are located (the default
               is ${prefix}/share/gEDA).  This environment variables does not need to be  set  by
               the end user unless they are moving the executables to a new install ${prefix}.
