I am looking for a way to draw a symbol to indicate a bus/multiple wires. I have seen (though I am unable to google reference pictures) schematics with a wire that has a diagonal line (45°) across it, next to which is a number. The number indicates the number of actual wires represented by the line. I figured this would be a good job for tikz circuits, however I have not found a defined shape for that (neither in the circuit library nor in the tikz symbols), thus I don't know how to define such a symbol(I don't feel that I have the time to work into the pgf basics of defining a shape that I then can define as a tikz-circuitlib element).
Am I missing something that is already there/available or could I get some pointers for a quickstart tod define this one shape?
Here a quick doodle of what I imagine(1 wire representing an 8 bit bus):
edit: I actually found one reference, however this is of little value: see the second entry for bus under the misc section (i do not care abour the arrows at the endof the path): http://www.rapidtables.com/electric/electrical_symbols.htm
