...or are these files (x993, x994 and u9136) parts?
Were do we place these parts, to be used by LSynth?

for matching parts.

The discussion whether files like this should go into
- PARTS
- PARTS\S
- P
has been led over years now without fruitful result.

Here are the various opinions:

(1) PARTS:
Some people would like to see such files there,
because they this way can be seen in tools element selection GUI,
e.g. MLCad. Would the file sit in PARTS\S or P this would not be the case.

(2) PARTS\S:
Some people argument that this in fact is logically a subfile.

(3) P:
Thinking even more generic, this actually is a primitive.

My personal opinion is (3), because this would be the cleanest
structure in our library. We should IMHO not choose (1)
just because some existing tools cannot show parts from P.

Oups, is it a problem on my machine or does 993 doesn't match this file correctly?

This is a Subpart, but has a part number...
It should use a leading s\ in front of its name, IMO.
BUT if this is a subpart, why 993 and 994 are parts?!
I would like to update this file with 2 edges, but it's impossible to upload ;-)

To be able to make cables from them at "user level"
This element is built in a special part, so I don't see the need to make it available at user level. I would simply make it a subpart of 2775c02... but if we want to be purist, it should be a subpart of a cable element named u9136 - so this one should then be s\u9136s01, and be of subpart type.

Comments:
it is a subpart in the parts folder as an exception.
the reason why is that 994 also is.
and 994.dat became such an exception because people argumented
that the cable constituents shall be easily accessible for a user
to build custom cables. and e.g. MLCad only shows parts in the user interface,
but not subparts or primitives.
however, I disagree with them.
to me, this clearly is a subpart, or even a primitive. the same goes for
the other cable constituents.
i think that making them user-accessible is a question of the tooling,
and a change should be done there, not here, i.e.,
we should not start putting subparts into the parts folder only to make them show up in MLCad.

I would heartfully agree if we could definitely phase out MLCad (or make it evolve). Unfortunately I'm afraid both are impossible...

what about the compromise similar to the new \8 folder:

we could put these parts where they BELONG,
ie, in the \s or \p folder, and create special redirection shortcuts
(1-liner) which we provide for MLCad.

I really like this idea.
I hope I'll find some more time, to make these changes (and fix all my other parts)
