At least that page told me which of the 30 attributes from the dropdown
are actually needed and what they should be. It appears that gEDA has
little users and thus little tutorials/howto's or the other way round?
At least for me its pretty difficult to get started for a free-time project.

I did. It build the netlist and simulates without error. But the results
are not what I expect and are wrong (since I know what the circuit does
in reality). What I did is vary the resistance R1 that will change the
output current, since there are always 1.25 V dropping over it.
> As far as I know, no gEDA symbols include simulation models.
Hmm... Maybe this should be communicated to new users. I was very happy
to find the LM317 in gschem until I found out that it does not simulate.
But then ...

Next thing I will try is to simulate a circuit with TLC227 opamps that I
got from spicelib. Will report my success or failure here :) Might
take a while tough. The current source is already working on my
breadboard, so maybe I can skip it.
