I think Roman is being a wee bit too sensitive over his treatment at the
hands of wee fickle Piclisters.
As one sig line says (amended) - your competition are not your enemy -
certainly not here in hippie-ware world.

I downloaded one of the middie versions of Roman's program and it was
certainly going in the right direction. I look forward to its completion. I
have bookmarked Al's one for when it also reaches maturity. There should be
a place for both if they don't both produce identical outputs.

My greatest need is for something suitable for putting good ASCII diagrams
in email. I can, albeit a little laboriously, produce GIFs from my old steam
driven PROTEL so if things get too complex that is often a viable solution.
For PICLIST level ccts with a few transistors, inductors, resistors etc and
maybe an IC or 2 then a straight ASCII solution is brilliant. Being able to
mail the standalone program is useful but not as much as having good ASCII
output. A program of any REASONABLE size can always be pointed to on a web
site and in many cases the main need is to send the diagram - enabling the
recipient to modify and respond is another (also very useful) matter.

I'll be very happy to see Roman's program become as useful as Protel DOS
Schematic! - keep up the good work Roman.
