gEDA PCB Footprint Creator Utility

This utility automatically creates the contents of common types of footprint files for the gEDA PCB layout tool. Simply enter the correct values in each field, press "Create Footprint", and then copy the contents of the output text window into a file with the name "partname.fp". If the part has special features, it may be necessary to manually modify the file.
