GDSreader - simple Calma (GDSii) parser/printer tool.

This software has as target the printing/plotting/displaying of Calma (GDSii)
files without using true layout editors. I had once to visualize an unknown

Current status:
- gdsreader is in an alpha stage and you should not expect too much from it;
- the Calma files are almost completely parsed (had no layout example that
makes use of BOX/NODE elements);

customizable too).

In order to produce an useful PostScript output, you need to write a
configuration file (default is .layers.config). The one you'll find with the
distribution is suitable for the Calma example test.gds (an actual Bandgap
