[Kicad-developers] Why do we have the stuff file?


I'm wondering... why do we have to have the .stf file around?

Couldn't eeschema simply read the cmp file?

There is already the parser in both cvpcb and pcbnew, so it should be
easy...

[Kicad-developers] Why do we have the stuff file?


You could also ask why have a .cmp file either?

The answer is: the .stf file was the simplist format
that cvpcb exported. The .stf file is used to back
annotate the schematic with footprint information. The
schematic could be the single source of the design
information: netlist including footprints, for pcbnew.
cvpcb is a nice tool focused on footprint assignment
and could output an annotated schematic, then both
.stf and .cmp files could be eliminated, especially
with an improved BOM output.
