ZofzPCB exposes two programmatic interfaces. 1. WM_COPYDATA and 2. shared file
The WM_COPYDATA interface lets ZofzPCB be controlled by an external program. Example commands are: Load file, jump to component, pin, show net.
The shared file also allows for communication in the reverse direction - reporting clicks on components, pins, selecting nets.
Please read the detailed information in the following resources:
An even better way to spot errors - browse the PCB and let your schematic tool show the corresponding object. Or browse the schematic and let the ZofzPCB show you the corresponding object on the PCB. ZofzPCB recognizes components, pins, nets. It is done by loading IPC-356 test-points file.
Now BB Bortolo provides script, allowing a connection between Cadence® OrCad® and ZofzPCB.
