Pin types on symbols for Dx/Ex flow.

First, hope this is the correct location.

 

Second, I am getting gready to release a new library converted from an older Board Station library.  The pin types in the Board Station library were never used correctly, so I need to get them changed in the Dx/EX side.  There are 10 types:

 

IN

OUT

BI

ANALOG

OCL

OEM

TRI

POWER

GROUND

TERMINAL

 

From what I read in the manuals, and what was taught in class, is most of these are for digital parts.  My problem are:

 

1.  There is no definition for TERMINAL.  What's it for?

2.  The sample libraries have the analog parts using BI for the pins.  Is that correct?

3.  What do you put on connectors?

4.  Do you use in/out on analog ICs that have a direction on the pin?  (like an OP AMP)

 

Guess that's all for now, but if you've run into anything special regarding pin types, please post!
