Great information. Is this documented anywhere? If not, it needs to
put somewhere in the documentation. I've seen equ and stf files before.
I never really understood what they were used for.
See the Cvpcb documentation, chapter 6 and 7, and eeschema doc, chapter 4.7
This is a very short documentation, but this topic is not very complex.
