New file formats
I have attached the XLR (Ultra Librarian
text and html document
published by Frank Frank and a copy of a parser I have started.
I believe owners of the Ultra Librarian can produce this ASCII format
for their designs. A couple of IC vendors (National and MicroChip)
provide binary format footprints which can be imported into Ultra Librarian.
I was considering adding productions to this parser for outputing Kicad
format as part of a translation utility.
(Unix guys use yacc(bison)/lex(flex) for parsers)
Look this over for ideas as a human readable, ASCII, parseable, usable
inuse for Footprints (and symbols) format.
