Gerber File Readme Generator Program

Circuit boards are so affordable these days, they are available to almost everyone who wants to have one fabricated. I have created a simple program to ease a tedious part of the process. I like to include a readme file with my submission of the board parameters and the Gerber layers included. Up to 10 Gerber layers may be included for a board, so listing each file name and extension can take some effort.

My program allows you to enter some parameters, click a few boxes and write the readme file to disk.

There is a complete description and a link to download the program at Digital-DIY. The program should run on all versions of Windows, although later versions may require installation of a Visual Basic ocx file, which I've included in the archive. I hope you'll find this program useful.
