pads_backannotate(1)		1.8.2.20130925		  pads_backannotate(1)

NAME
       pads_backannotate  -  backannotates  changes  from  a  PADS engineering
       change order (ECO) file to schematic

SYNOPSIS
       pads_backannotate -h|--help

       pads_backannotate -V|--version

       pads_backannotate [options] ecofile.eco infile1.sch [infile2.sch	...]

DESCRIPTION
       The pads_backannotate program reads an engineering change  order	 (ECO)
       file  generated	by  the	 PADS  program and backannotates the requested
       changes to a gschem schematic or	schematics.  Refer to the PADS	manual
       for a complete description of the ECO file format.

OPTIONS
       -h, --help
	      prints help message and exits

       -n, --nocopy
	      Leave  the modified schematic files in new files whose names are
	      generated	by appending .new to the original file names.  The de-
	      fault is to overwrite the	original.

       -v, --verbose
	      operate verbosely

       -V, --version
	      prints version information and exits

EXIT STATUS
       pads_backannotate  will	return	0 if all files processed successfully,
       non-zero	if the command did not complete	successfully.

BUGS
       Rather than parsing and processing schematic files directly, this util-
       ity should be rewritten using the gEDA scheme API.  This	would take ad-
       vantage of the existing parsers for the schematic files.

       Reference designator renaming is	fully supported.  Pin and  gate	 swap-
       ping is parsed but not automatically applied to the schematic database.
       Instead,	a report listing the manual pin	and gate swapping that is  re-
       quired.	The other features of the ECO file are not supported yet.
