Library examples

Scripts provided here contain simple shell scripts I use to create my own library. They are not built systematically and they cannot be considered to be some complete and/or systematic solution. They are created ad-hoc and they contain only parts I use, used or planned to use.

These scripts are provided just as example how to use model and footprint generator scripts and how to create component map files.

Before you use the scripts, please adjust the path settings in the file
