This is the debut of FidoCadJ on SourceForge. I hope that this software will be well received by the Open Source community.
Basically, FidoCadJ is a Java program which uses the FidoCad format for drawing electrical schematics as well as simple printed circuit boards. Those drawings can be easily embedded in a very compact text code in a Usenet message.
This feature has determined the spread of the FidoCad format on the italian Usenet community since mid '90, but until FidoCadJ, it was difficult to use it on a non-Windows system. FidoCadJ runs in every operating system on which a reasonably recent Java runtime environment is installed.
Feel free to use FidoCadJ, give hints on improvement, submit bugs tracking and discussing in the forum.
I am also searching for people who would like to participate to the coding, translate FidoCadJ to different languages or work on the standard symbol library.
