I have Orcad-SDT here...it'd take some effort to assemble up and zip.
I can burn a CD...runs under DOS, and is VERY fast and easy to use.
Only downside is that the printer drivers are very very old...
The "free" demo CD versions of Orcad offer a little more flexibility but
you cannot save the files. I still prefer the DOS version. It can be
easily configured to run under windows.
