       refdes_renum --help

       refdes_renum --version


       refdes_renum  reads  a  gschem  schematic  file  or  files  and  renumbers  all  reference
       designators.  The reference designators are numbered starting with 1 and the old schematic
       file is replaced by the modified schematic file.


       --help Display a help message.

              If  given,  this  flag  leaves  the  modified  files  in  new files whose names are
              generated by appending a `.renum' to the original file names.  The  default  is  to
              overwrite the original.

              When  this  flag  is  used,  components  on  the first schematic sheet are numbered
              starting with 101.  On the second sheet, they start with  201,  etc   Specifying  a
              value  gives  the  step between pages.  For example --pgskip 10 will start with 11,
              21, 31, etc.

              This flag tells refdes_renum to leave any  refdeses  alone  if  they  already  have
              numbers.  Use this option to number new components in a schematic which has already
              been numbered.  Note that --gentle is set by default!

              Set this flag to renumber all refdeses, whether they are already numbered or not.

              Enables verbose output.

       refdes_renum returns the following codes to the shell upon completion:

       0      Program ran successfully.

       1      Error opening or reading input file.

       2      Error opening or writing output file.

       3      Too many components for --pgskip setting.

       4      Internal error (program bug encountered).


       To renumber the reference designators in a single page schematic mysch.sch:

              refdes_renum mysch.sch

       To renumber the reference designators in schematic pages  pg1.sch,  pg2.sch  and  pg3.sch,
       with  the  reference  designators  on pg1.sch beginning at 101, the designators on pg2.sch
       beginning at 201, and the designators on pg3.sch beginning at 301:

              refdes_renum --pgskip pg1.sch pg2.sch pg3.sch
