QckBool was developed to aid designers to manipulate their GDSII mask data. It does this performing Boolean operations on polygons such as UNION (joining overlapping or touching polygons), Intersection (creating just the overlap area) and XOR (creating new polygons of just the areas that do not overlap).
QckBool includes basic functions which can be combined by the user to achieve a wide variety of results. The program is configured from a dialog box; however a user can define multiple "jobs" that can be run in batch mode.
The script, BoolCompare2Files, compares two GDSII files, layer by layer and outputs a difference file.
Describes how to use gdscomp on data files with arrays (non-overlapping) which then speeds up the Boolean operation.
An example of how you would use QckBool to create derived layers for an IC design.
Describes how to run the QckBool engine from the command line. Useful for anyone who wants to run the engine from their own application or framework.
