The CIRCAD PCB and schematic capture package is only one of a suite of tools that have been wrapped within the OmniGlyph® drawing engine. In addition to
the two standard graphics editors, OmniGlyph contains display engines for text, ASCII, binary, and pixel image files. OmniGlyph coordinates data file sharing
and privacy between multiple instances of children windows. This provides a connected set of data files for a pair (or more) of text editors while providing
a separate set of files for a CIRCAD window. Any combination of shared or private files between any combination if children is possible.
While CIRCAD is a large portion of the OmniGlyph package, it is OmniGlyph's rich internal data structure that lets CIRCAD and Holopad share files and have
inter-process communication. Modifications of a given data file in one editor will dynamically update the data in other shared window. It is interesting
to consider that CIRCAD is written by hardware design engineers for engineering, while Holopad is written by software programmers for programming. OmniGlyph
is the conduit and connection between the two.
Even as a fledgling, OmniGlyph was used to create this website and edit the source code that composes it.
