    I have drawn up a schematic using the freeware version of Eagle, and I
    want to share it with a friend who has version 4.09, but it is not
    compatible. However, he has a fully registered version and so
    obviously simply upgrading is not an option. The best option seems to
    be for me to simply use 4.09 freeware for this project, but the
    trouble is a couple of libraries I use (an SD card socket and the
    Propeller chip for example) are not available. Also, I can't directly
    load or use a netscript to simply load up my schematic in the old

    I was wondering if anyone can point me too some info on the changes to
    the scripts between these versions so I can save as a script in 4.16,
    manually alter the script to the 4.09 format, and then load it up in
    the older version. I have not managed to find documentation on this
    scripting language for either version. :-(

    Thanks for any help,

  2. Hi Ken,

    I believe there is a script in the download section at
    that will export a layout to a script. You can then use that script to
    reload the design. I'm not sure how well it handles the version boundary,
    but in theory it should be possible. Some of the syntax changed
    (specifically with arcs if I recall) with version 4.1.

    I've never used it and I'm not sure how well its been maintained. Good
