    This is a really great program. It is fairly easy to draw many different types of MSCs. There are lots of different types of symbols, arrows, lines, colors, etc. This tool can easily replace lots of manual "hand" drawing tools with all the benefits of handling pure text files. The documentation is also well written and detailed. The developer is also very responsive and open to questions and suggestions. I have researched a few of the text based MSC drawing tools and this one is the best by far.
