Eagle-

but be careful when using a bitmap to print. The bitmap image printed may be scaled up/down and the components may not fit.
best way is to print directly by the pcb design software.

if you dont have a printer at home create a PDF and carry it. there are many free pdf tools.

Some really simple and old tools were for dos- try seraching for
1) Easytrax
2) tango
3) PCB (for linux)
