    Well, it is an editor or sorts; perhaps Ascii Character Drawing Program

    would be a more appropriate name. At any rate, I'm please to announce
    that PyAscii version 0.6 is available for download at - just click on the filename. contains an executable for WinXP. This should be
    considered beta software since it has not had much testing by anyone
    other than myself. Download and read the readme.txt file before
    unzipping. contains the Python source files.
    I'm using Python 2.3.

    What is PyAscii?

    PyAscii is a ASCII character drawing program, presently configured
    to produce electronics schematics. Salient features:

    * Electronic symbols or objects commonly used in drawing
    electronics schematics may choosen from a list and placed
    on the screen. They can also be moved, copied or deleted
    with a few mouse clicks.

    * Similarly, groups of object on the screen may be moved,
    copied or deleted.

    * Certain operations such as placing symbols, labels and pin
    numbershave been automated to some extent.

    * Standard resistor and capacitor values in either US or
    European form may be selected from tables.

    * Text may be quickly placed anywhere on the drawing. Just
    move the cursor to the desired spot and start typing. Entered
    text may moved, copied or deleted just like any other drawing
    object. Single lines of text may be oriented vertically.

    * Component labels (R1, R2, etc.) may be generated automatically.

    * The ASCII drawing may be previewed or copied to the clipboard
    or to a file at any time.

    * A build-in editor allows modification of existing component
    definitions or the addition of new ones. Component definitions
    are in a WYSIWYG form. Multiple component definition files
    may be used.
