    Hi all,

    I'm just getting started in electronics, and i'm enjoying assembling shop
    bought kits. But now i'm looking at moving a step up and building circuits
    off the net and from books etc.
    What i'm after is a software program that i can draw reasonably simple
    circuiot diagrams into, which will produce a suitable track side layout for
    pcb production (or at least construction on a vero-board).

    Can anyone suggest something suitable? Free would be the best price :)

    Eagle mentioned above is a popular choice.
    I use it even though its certain ways of doing things are very inconvenient.
    However, the idea is not to find the ideal software (doesn't exist) but to
    start using one thing and learn to work with its ideosyncrasies. Half the
    time the best way to do things is the one you are used to. Eagle will do all
    of the things you want to do.
