gschem and friends
Here is a list of programs that are part of gEDA/gaf (gschem and friends):
gschem is the schematic capture program/tool which is part of gEDA. Its sole purpose is to facilitate the graphical input of components/circuits.
gnetlist is a netlist generation program. It takes as input gEDA/gaf .sch (schematic) file and the required .sym (symbol) files and converts them into netlists.
gattrib is gEDA's attribute editor. It reads a set of gschem .sch files (schematic files), and creates a spreadsheet showing all components in rows, with the associated component attributes listed in the columns.
symbols (on a schematic) are an abstract representation of the physical components used in electronic circuits.
There are many utilities included as part of gEDA/gaf.
