eagle2geda Symbol Converter

Well, after the last post I thought I would give the Eagle to gEDA converter a try. At first I thought about reverse engineering the Eagle format and then output the result. This would have the advantage that you wouldn’t need to run Eagle to do this. I decided that this would be too much work and was about to give up, but then I remembered that Eagle has quite a good scripting language called ULP. About 2 hours later I have this script which converts “symbols” in an Eagle library to a gEDA symbol. As this seems so easy I may continue and see if I can make a converter for a complete Schematic and PCB. I’ve attached a picture of a symbol in both gschem and Eagle at the same time.Hope other people find this useful too. Component in Eagle and gschem

    Hi Mithro,

    I was very impressed to see your eagle2geda converter. I can’t get it to work though, I get the error that the symbol “S” is not found. Is this because I am running the script in the wrong window?

    There is a typo in the version that is uploaded it should be “” not “”.

    I have however mostly abandoned this converter. I don’t have time to work on it and have used neither eagle or gEDA is over a year. Feel free to do what you want with it.
