I have a large number of CIF files which I need to convert to GDS. I can open each one and File > Save As > ___.gds, but would like to do this in batch mode.
I found this description of how to open GDS files and save as DXF, in batch manner: http://klayout.de/forum/comments.php?DiscussionID=173&page=1#Item_0
However the script that Matthias gives there doesn't seem to work for GDS->DXF, let alone for CIF->GDS. (I get an error message saying it can't open the GDS file, however it is a valid and simple GDS file.
Can anyone tell me how to batch convert CIF -> GDS? I'm a newbie so please go easy.
