pcb_backannotate - backannotates changes from a PCB annotation file to schematic
pcb_backannotate -h|--help pcb_backannotate -V|--version pcb_backannotate [options] ecofile.eco infile1.sch [infile2.sch ...]
The pcb_backannotate program reads an engineering change order (ECO) file generated by the PCB program and backannotates the requested changes to a gschem schematic or schematics. Refer to the PCB manual for a complete description of the ECO file format.
-h, --help prints help message and exits -n, --nocopy Leave the modified schematic files in new files whose names are generated by appending .new to the original file names. The default is to overwrite the original. -v, --verbose operate verbosely -V, --version prints version information and exits
pcb_backannotate will return 0 if all files processed successfully, non-zero if the command did not complete successfully.
Rather than parsing and processing schematic files directly, this utility should be rewritten using the gEDA scheme API. This would take advantage of the existing parsers for the schematic files.
