Re: gEDA-user: Reacquainting to geda and pcb

There are two types of footprins in the library - "m4 style" generated
footprints, and "newlib style" file footprints.  The "m4" style gives
you, for example, all the different size 0.1" pitch headers with one
macro definition, so you don't see one file per footprint for those.
The "newlib" style uses separate files for each footprint, and should
have a .fp extension (which you may omit when specifying your
footprint).  Custom footprints tend to be *.fp.

When you install pcb, it should install a web page "catalog" of the
symbols... somewhere, I hope :-)
