Setting up the MAP File

The map file contains a list of layers and the associated fill pattern and outline color/type for each layer. The sample for this exercise is shown below

#Layer Map Begin
0 0 0 1"
1 2 0 1"
2 3 2 1"
3 4 3 1"
4 5 4 1"
5 6 5 1"
#Layer Map End

Details

The MAP file begins with #Layer Map Begin and ends with #Layer Map End.

each line maps a layer to a fill pattern, outline color and outline type.

column 1    - GDSII Layer.
column 2    - fill pattern number (see colfill.pat pattern file) 
column 3    - outline color 0=white 1=black 2=red 3=green 4=yellow 5=blue 6=magenta 7=cyan
column 4    - outline type 1=solid. (there are other types - refer to the GDSPLOT manual)
