WGBRCAT - command line merge utility for Gerber Files
WBGRCAT is a very simple utility that can be used to merge multiple Gerber (RS274X) files into a single file. There are a number of restrictions that must be adhered to.
All files must be RS274X format
All files must share the same data Format (units, zero suppression, absolute/incremental)
All files must share the same set of apertures and these should be fully defined in the 274X header.
How it Works
The program works by concatenating the various files; stripping off the end-of-file command of each file except for the last one.
Command Line Syntax
wgbrcat.exe file1 file2 .... -o:merged_file Where wgbrcat.exe the executable. If not in the current directory use a fully qualified path i.e c:\wcad\asm500\wgbrcat.exe file1 the first file in the list to merge if these are not in the current directory then use a fully qualified path i.e. c:\users\design\file1.gbr file2 the second file to merge ... additional files to merge -o:merged_file the name of the output file. If no path is provided, then the file will be written to the current directory. Otherwise use a fully qualified path.
