>From the README:
  This is a set of macros for drawing high-quality line diagrams to
  include in TeX, LaTeX, or similar documents.  The macros were
  originally intended for electric circuit diagrams containing
  fundamental elements, amplifiers, transistors, and basic logic gates,
  but several tools and examples for other types of diagrams are also
  included.  The advantages and disadvantages of such a system are
  similar to those of TeX itself, which is macro-based and non-wysiwyg,
  with ordinary character input.

  The macros evaluate to drawing commands in the pic "little language,"
  which is easy to read and learn.  Pic is well suited to line drawings
  requiring parametric or conditional components, fine tuning,
  significant geometric calculations or repetition, or to drawings that
  are naturally block structured or tree structured.  Arbitrary formatted
  text can be included.  Free TeX- and LaTeX-compatible interpreters
  for m4 and pic are readily available.
  Read the manual man.ps and view or print the file examples.ps in the
  examples directory, or for the possibly unstable development version, try

  A collection of examples and hints intended for his colleagues has
  been produced by Alan Robert Clark at http://ytdp.ee.wits.ac.za/cct.html
Version 5.5: New macros potentiometer, variable, igbt, tline. Optional
  negated logic gate inputs. Options for diode, source.

Thanks for the upload.  I installed it as suggested replacing the previous
version in CTAN:graphics/circuit_macros/
