-Even though gaf is very much a part of gEDA, the gEDA name does not necessarily only apply to gaf – tools gathered under the “gEDA” moniker include many other programs. Indeed, gEDA refers to **any** GPL'd EDA tool which decides to associate itself with the gEDA website/​mailing list. Important examples of gEDA tools include the layout program [[http://​pcb.gpleda.org|PCB]], the Verilog compiler [[http://​www.icarus.com/​eda/​verilog/​|Icarus Verilog]], the analog circuit simulator [[http://​www.gnucap.org/​|gnucap]],​ and the open-source SPICE simulator [[http://​www.ngspice.org/​|ngspice]].
