# Electronics Workbench file structure [closed]

I have searched for information about the .ewb file structure, but I have come to nothing. I opened it with notepad and it´s ciphered, by no known public cipher I know. Can someone give me an advice about the file structure, or point me to another program with a known file format?

What I need is a circuit designing program for use in an app I am developing, so that i don´t have to reinvent the wheel.

You should probably try Eagle or Diptrace, rather than try reverse engineering something. – JYelton Dec 24 '12 at 23:15
If you're on linux, feed the .ewb file into the file command to see if there's anything easy to get to in the contents. It may just be a common zip file with a different suffix. – Connor Wolf Dec 25 '12 at 2:18

For schematic capture, Kicad has a text based format which is very easy to understand and pretty well documented.
