NAME
       gschem -	gEDA/gaf Schematic Capture

SYNOPSIS
       gschem [OPTION ...] [--]	[FILE ...]

DESCRIPTION
       gschem is a schematic capture application, and is part of the gEDA (GPL
       Electronic Design Automation) toolset.  It is used to  draw  electronic
       schematics,  which  describe  the  logical  structure  of  an  circuit.
       Schematics are made up of symbols, which	represent the  various	compo-
       nents  in  the circuit, and are obtained	either from a standard library
       or created by the user.	The connections	between	components represented
       by  nets	 (wires).   Schematics may be printed to a PostScript file for
       printing	or further conversion to other output formats.	Output to var-
       ious image formats is also supported.

       gschem can also be used for editing symbols for use in schematics.

OPTIONS
       -q, --quiet
	       Quiet mode. Turn	off all	warnings/notes/messages.

       -v, --verbose
	       Verbose mode.  Output all diagnostic information.

       -r, --config-file=FILE
	       Specify	an  additional	configuration  file.   Normally	gschem
	       searches	  for	the   system	configuration	 file,	  then
	       `$HOME/.gEDA/gschemrc',	and  finally  for a `gschemrc' file in
	       the current working directory.  This option allows the user  to
	       specify an additional rc	file which is read after all the other
	       rc files	have been are read.

       -L DIRECTORY
	       Prepend DIRECTORY to the	list of	directories to be searched for
	       Scheme files.

       -s FILE Specify a Scheme	script to be executed at startup.

       -c EXPR Specify a Scheme	expression to be evaluated at startup.

       -o, --output=FILE
	       Specify	a  filename  for PostScript output.  This command line
	       argument	is useful when running gschem from a shell script  and
	       with  a Scheme script.  The filename can	be changed through the
	       print dialog box.

       -p      Automatically place the window. This may	be useful  if  running
	       gschem from the command line and	generating output.

       -h, --help
	       Print a help message.

       -V, --version
	       Print gschem version information.

       --      Treat all remaining arguments as	schematic or symbol filenames.
	       Use this	if you have a schematic	or symbol filename  which  be-
	       gins with `-'.

SCHEMATIC AND SYMBOL FILES
       Optionally,  schematic  or symbol FILEs may be specified	on the command
       line.  Any schematic or symbols specified are loaded at startup as sep-
       arate documents in the schematic	editor.

       If no FILEs are specified, a blank schematic is created for editing.

ENVIRONMENT
       GEDADATA
	       specifies  the  search  directory for Scheme and	rc files.  The
	       default is `${prefix}/share/gEDA'.

       GEDADATARC
	       specifies the search directory for rc files.   The  default  is
	       `$GEDADATA'.
