GenCAD specs?


I have troubles with the generated .gcd file sent to manufacturing (to do flying probe testing). The factory people says that it 'doesn't load'. Whilewaiting for additional info about the problem, are there some docs on thatformat?

I tried to give the .gcd to eat to an old orcad layout 9... it chokes on the line end (it wants CRLF, maybe it's the problem with the factory); fixingthat requires a '$PADSTACKS' section and giving it a 'trivial' padstack definition (every pad type as a padstack on each layer) hangs with 100% CPU... maybe it's Layout that sucks, maybe it's the gcd file...

Anybody has experience with that format?
