Development environment and netlist parser

Arindam Banerjee's picture

I made the development environment ready - Ubuntu 14.04 LTS, Eclipse IDE, made a couple of initial commits to Git repo and everything is working fine. Today I had a discussion with KiCad dev group regarding netlist format. The custom attribute is a difficult part and also further features can be added in future. Hence they suggested to make the parser flexible so that it can be updated later. I will start with the basic netlist format and will implement the placement algorithm with that.
