       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 performs:

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

       · Checks for the device= attribute

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

       · 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, etc...)

       · 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

       -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 (optional)

       -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
