What is the standard IEEE schematic symbol to denote a jumper where a wire solders directly to a PCB. The wire goes off someplace else and not somewhere on the same PCB.

That would be a wire connector then, not a jumper. wink.gif I don't know if they standardize anything like this (though I'd suggest being weary of IEEE symbols, they're ugly as sin), but the traditional means is either a circle at the end of a line (also test points and such), or a double arrow (usually indicating an interchangeable connection to an immediate circuit or network), or any traditional kind of connector (like a rectangular header, usually drawn as pins attaching to a box; whether there's a connector or not, the footprint is the same for a ribbon cable, and a single wire still counts as a 1x1 header).


Answering questions is a tricky subject to practice. Not due to the difficulty of formulating or locating answers, but due to the human inability of asking the right questions; a skill that, were one to possess, would put them in the "answering" category.
