◆ CreatePinList()

std::vector< PIN_INFO > NETLIST_EXPORTER_BASE::CreatePinList ( SCH_SYMBOL aSymbol,
SCH_SHEET_PATH aSheetPath,
bool  aKeepUnconnectedPins 
)
protected

Find a symbol from the DrawList and builds its pin list.

This list is sorted by pin number. The symbol is the next actual symbol after aSymbol. Power symbols and virtual symbols that have their reference designators starting with '#' are skipped. if aKeepUnconnectedPins = false, unconnected pins will be removed from list but usually we need all pins in netlists.

◆ eraseDuplicatePins()

void NETLIST_EXPORTER_BASE::eraseDuplicatePins ( std::vector< PIN_INFO > &  pins)
protected

Erase duplicate pins.

(This is a list of pins found in the whole schematic, for a single symbol.) These duplicate pins were put in list because some pins (power pins...) are found more than once when in "multiple symbols per package" symbols. For instance, a 74ls00 has 4 symbols, and therefore the VCC pin and GND pin appears 4 times in the list. Note: this list MUST be sorted by pin number (.m_PinNum member value) Also set the m_Flag member of "removed" NETLIST_OBJECT pin item to 1

void NETLIST_EXPORTER_BASE::findAllUnitsOfSymbol ( SCH_SYMBOL aSchSymbol,
SCH_SHEET_PATH aSheetPath,
std::vector< PIN_INFO > &  aPins,
bool  aKeepUnconnectedPins 
)
protected

Find all units for symbols with multiple symbols per package.

Search the entire design for all units of aSymbol based on matching reference designator, and for each unit, add all its pins to the sorted pin list. if aKeepUnconnectedPins = false, unconnected pins will be removed from list but usually we need all pins in netlists.

◆ findNextSymbol()

SCH_SYMBOL * NETLIST_EXPORTER_BASE::findNextSymbol ( EDA_ITEM aItem,
SCH_SHEET_PATH aSheetPath 
)
protected

Check if the given symbol should be processed for netlisting.

Prevent processing multi-unit symbols more than once, etc.

Parameters
aItemis a symbol to check
aSheetPathis the sheet to check the symbol for
Returns
the symbol if it should be processed, or nullptr

wxString NETLIST_EXPORTER_BASE::MakeCommandLine ( const wxString &  aFormatString,
const wxString &  aNetlistFile,
const wxString &  aFinalFile,
const wxString &  aProjectDirectory 
)
static

Build up a string that describes a command line for executing a child process.

The input and output file names along with any options to the executable are all possibly in the returned string.

Parameters
aFormatStringholds:
  • the name of the external program
  • any options needed by that program
  • formatting sequences, see below.
aNetlistFileis the name of the input file for the external program, that is a intermediate netlist file in xml format.
aFinalFileis the name of the output file that the user expects.
aProjectDirectoryis used for P replacement, it should omit the trailing '/'.

Supported formatting sequences and their meaning:

  • B => base filename of selected output file, minus path and extension.
  • I => complete filename and path of the temporary input file.
  • O => complete filename and path of the user chosen output file.
  • P => project directory, without name and without trailing '/'
