NAME
       gdsreader - simple Calma	parser/printer tool

SYNTAX
       gdsreader [-h|--help]

       gdsreader [-i|--ifile <filename>]  [-H|--hpglfile <filename>] [-p|--ps-
       file <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 re-
       sult.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  std-
       out.  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.
