lepton-schematic - Lepton EDA Schematic Capture


lepton-schematic [OPTION ...] [--] [FILE ...]


lepton-schematic is a schematic capture application, and is part of the Lepton EDA (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 components 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 various image formats is also supported.

lepton-schematic can also be used for editing symbols for use in schematics.


Quiet mode. Turn off all warnings/notes/messages.
Verbose mode. Output all diagnostic information.
Prepend DIRECTORY to the list of directories to be searched for Scheme files.
Specify a Scheme script to be executed at startup.
Specify a Scheme expression to be evaluated at startup.
Print a help message.
Print lepton-schematic version information.
Treat all remaining arguments as schematic or symbol filenames. Use this if you have a schematic or symbol filename which begins with `-'.


Optionally, schematic or symbol FILEs may be specified on the command line. Any schematic or symbols specified are loaded at startup as separate documents in the schematic editor.

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