[NOSC] CAD tools (was: Verilog)

Well, I found an answer to my question.

Here's the blurb:

The Electric(TM) VLSI Design System 
is a complete Electronic Design Automation (EDA)
system that can handle many forms of circuit design, including: 
Custom IC layout 
Schematic Capture (digital and analog) 
Textual Languages such as VHDL and Verilog 
Electro-mechanical hybrid layout 
Programmable logic (FPGAs) 
...and much more. 


It seems to be a very mature and clean UNIX/Win32/Mac program.
I had almost no problems compiling it.
Ran through the basic tutorial no prob.
So far so good.
If it can do what I think it can do (export a digital schematic to many output
formats like Verilog, VHDL, EDIF, etc...) then I have a second chance.

Of course...I'm also *eagerly* awaiting the release of OKAD II. :)
Defining Forth machines in Forth would be nirvana I presume.
