a recent post mentionned Anuvad
http://www.softjin.com/html/anuvad.htm

it's a library for GDS2 & OASIS reading/writing, but it includes as a "sample"
a tool to convert GDS2 to ASCII- you'll have to compile it however, but it's
not a big deal-

cheers,

stéphane

I downloaded this software last month but has not played around nor
created TCL interface yet.. Would you share your experience with this
API?

thanks,

I'm just like you...
Thought about wrapping it for perl, on my side, but I didn't do it yet.
We're all with our good intentions but too busy, i'd say-

I downloaded and compiled Anuvad and it seemed to work for me, though I
haven't tested it too much. gds2txt can be found here:
http://www.magma.ca/~psharris/gds2txt.zip

I haven't tried it though. If it gives you an error then your layout is
probably invalid. If you can send me the exact error and the GDSII layout
I might be able to help you find the problem.

There are several programs to convert gds2 to text. I use
StreamVista-Plot from www.semigy.com. It is a windows gdsii viewer
that can export to text. You can download the demo version and see if
it works for you. It does not convert gdsii directly to text--it just
gives the more meaning geometry info from a gdsii file. You can choose
between a couple of different output formats.

A couple of other pograms to convert gdsii to text are at:
http://www.neander.com/GdsDump.html
http://www.itee.uq.edu.au/~iltseng/Downloads/

I haven't used either of these.

The extension .EXE is to obvious, isn't it?
But for sure you can test it:

% file GDS2TXT.EXE
....

Simon, Frank, Jmailguard, PM,

Why would one wish to convert GDSII to text?
Is the purpose to VERIFY the GDSII?
If so, wouldn't a GDSII viewer be better than TEXT?

What is the intended purpose of converting GDSII to text?

If you can use a C/C++ compiler take a look at:
