NAME

gdsreader - simple Calma parser/printer tool

CONTENTS

SYNTAX

gdsreader [-h|--help]

gdsreader [-i|--ifile <filename>] [-H|--hpglfile <filename>] [-p|--psfile <filename>] [-v|--povfile <filename>] [-c|--configfile <filename>] [-s|--struct <filename>]

DESCRIPTION

This program produces HPGL, PS, and POVRAY scene files from Calma (GDS2) files. To do this it requires a configuration file supplied by the user describing the GDS layers and the preferences as to how they be drawn.

OPTIONS

-h, --help: prints this help text
-H, --hpglfile "file": opens "file" for writing HPGL (defaults to result.plt)
-p, --psfile "file": opens "file" for writing PostScript (defaults to result.ps)
-v, --povfile "file": opens "file" for writing POVRAY (defaults to result.pov)
-i, --ifile "file": opens "file" as the GDSii input file (if not specified, stdin is used)
-c, --configfile "file": opens "file" as the layers definition file (defaults to .layers.config)
-s, --struct "sname": "sname" is the top cell to be printed (if not specified, the names of all structures and layers are written to stdout. No PS/HPGL/POV files are generated)
 

FILES

result.*, *.gds, layers.config

ENVIRONMENT VARIABLES

NONE No special Environment variables

EXAMPLES

To run this program the standard way type:

gdsreader -i mygdsfile.gds -c mylayers.config

(This would produce result.ps, result.plt, and result.pov)

In the install directory, under doc/gdsreader, there should be a sample test.gds and layers.config file. The layers.config file should contain layer descriptions of the form:

[...]
newlayer
gdsno 15
hidden no
name Ndiff
red 0.9
green 0.1
blue 0.9
fill no
hatch no
thickness 0.1
depth -0.02
endlayer
[...]

The depth and thickness parameters are only used for povray output.
