DESCRIPTION
       gsymcheck  is  a	symbol checker for gEDA/gaf.  Here is a	list of	checks
       that gsymcheck performs:

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

       o Checks	for the	device=	attribute

       o Checks	for various other missing attributes (pinlabel,	pintype,  pin-
	 seq, footprint, refdes)

       o Checks	to make	sure that the active pin end is	on the 100 unit	grid.

       o Checks	the uses of the	various	attributes (duplicates,	incorrect syn-
	 tax, invalid values, etc...)

       o Checks	for obsolete, old, and forbidden attributes

       o Checks	for any	nets or	buses within a symbol

       o Checks	for any	other connections within a symbol

       o 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/mes-
	       sages. (optional)

       -h      Usage summary / gsymcheck help

       symbol1 [... symbolN]
	       At least	one symbol file	must be	specified.  If	multiple  sym-
	       bols  are  specified  then  they	 are  sequentially read	in and
	       checked.	 It is important that the schematic(s) follow all  the
	       options (ie last).

EXAMPLES
       Here are	some examples on how to	run gsymcheck:

       To get usage information	just run:

	     gsymcheck

       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

ENVIRONMENT
       gsymcheck respects the following	environment variable:

       GEDADATA
	       specifies  where	 the  various required scheme and rc files are
	       located (the default is ${prefix}/share/gEDA).	This  environ-
	       ment  variables	does not need to be set	by the end user	unless
	       they are	moving the executables to a new	install	${prefix}.
