Running xgdsplot in Batch mode creates black plots

Under certain conditions users were able to make the program create black plots when running the gdsplt engine from the command line.
The problem happened when the plot.cfg file didn't have in it the path to the fill pattern file called colfill.pat.

Solution

Specify the location of the pattern file colfill.pat on the command line.

/cad/xgdsplot/bin/gdsplt -pat:/cad/xgdsplot/bin/colfill.pat -RAM64 -a2 -aref=calma test.gds test.cfg gdsplot.map TEST_CELL -job:test.job
