I'm having a problem running a User Language Program that converts Eagle
symbols into LTSpice symbols. The ULP is named sym2ltspice.ulp, and was
obtained from the LTSpice users' YahooGroup at:
The usage info that comes up in Eagle's control panel is:
"Export a symbol to a LTspice/SwitcherCAD III symbol
The LTspice symbol file is saved in the project directory, if no file name
The created symbol lacks some attributes, therefore it must be edited with
the LTspice symbol editor afterwards."
I can't get this ULP to find the actual "symbol." Every time
sym2ltspice.ulp runs it generates this error message: "File not found.
Check the filename and try again."
Even though Eagle shows the symbol as having a file extension, the symbol
itself does not actually have an absolute folder location, because it is
embedded within the library file. Inserting the symbol's name into the
"symbolname" parameter produced the error message. I tried using the
absolute directory location of the libray, instead of the symbol name -- as
well as both. I also supplied an exact location for the LTSpice file to be
written. But nothing worked. Adding the .sym file extension to the symbol
name didn't work either.
I'm running the ULP within Eagle's library editor. The symbol I'm trying to
export to LTSpice is loaded into the editor's window. Then I go to "run"
and select sym2ltspice.ulp, typing in the necessary parameters. The ULP
always fails to find the symbol when using the parameters I have supplied.
I've tried everything reasonable, and also searched the net for other users
of this ULP, but have come up empty-handed.
Any hints as to what might work would be greatly appreciated.
