I've ust heard great news that Eagle 6 supports an open XML based file format. But where could I find a specification of this format which I would use to "read, edit and parse the data outside of the EAGLE tool"?Original article at http://www.element14.com/community/message/41313?tstart=0#41313.

I think it is important to understand the Eagle DTD in order to develop software that reads and writes the Eagle XML Files. So I try to make it more interactive and add example usage of some elements by using DTDDocs. Hope this help you. http://makerstorage.com/eagledtd/ RegardsNuriOriginal article at https://www.element14.com/community/message/202735?tstart=0#202735.
