64 Pcb, an X-based PC board design tool

(from comp.windows.x.apps)

Pcb is a handy tool for the X Window System build to design printed circuit boards. It supports multiple layers and circuit libraries with a resolution of 0.001 inch. Refer to the manual for more details.

The new feature are:

  - user interface has been 'cleaned up'
  - number of key strokes have been reduced by menues
  - encapsulated PostScript is now supported
  - all deleted objects can be recovered
  - most of the operations can also work with 'selected' objects
  - some circuits and packages are included
  - fileselect boxes with user defined commands and preset directories
    make a flexible user interface
  - the position of element names is now changeable. Both names of an
    element are changeable
  - grid settings are either absolute (to 0,0) or relative to the
    position where it has changed
  - messages and stderr of external commands can be redirected to a
    log window
  - *** a special goodie: ***
