OK, I've been screwing around with editing gerber files and I'm getting
closer.

The top of the Camtastic generated gerber file looked like this:

G04 CAM Products 2000  RS274-X Output*
G04 Serial Number: 0000-00-00000*
G04 File Name:C:\design\spectral\Rcc00340\Rcc003\CONVERT.GBL *
%FSLAX34Y34*%
%MOIN*%
%SFA1B1*%
...


while the top of one of my Protel generated gerber files looked like this:

%FSLAX24Y24*%
%MOIN*%
G70*
G01*
G75*
%ADD10R,0.0160X0.0500*%


I removed the first 3 lines that start with G04 and Protel accepted the
file!
Some parts are missing...(I really don't know why) but I'm getting closer.

Any assistance to get a clean, accurate gerber load would still be useful!

Tony
