If I would get the tab separated text file from org tables, then I
would be to run on it the tragesym python script. Tragesym can to make
from this tab separated text file an electric symbol for gEDA suite.


However, I can now to send an org table within org file to tab
separated lines. I run orgtbl-send-table on every org-table in the org

After that I can to run on this org file tragesym, but get an error
message in some circumstances. If I edit one table in this org file so
that I put '#' character at start of every line then I get the
electric symbol file when run tragesym on the org file. If I leave the
file unedited then I get error message: 

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/local/geda-0.0.2/bin/.scripts/tragesym.py", line 586, in <module>
  File "/usr/local/geda-0.0.2/bin/.scripts/tragesym.py", line 143, in readsrc
IndexError: list index out of range

But this is maybe the issue for the geda news group: 


The file with edited lines that don't cause this error because of '#'
characters at beginning of the lines is attached here..

Attachment: dual_pho_tran_optocoupler.org
Description: The edited org file with '#' characters at one torg table

Without these '#' characters at the '[geda_attr]' org table I get the
error message: IndexError: list index out of range

This is maybe a tragesym bug..

Any advices will be appreciated!
