Good Afternoon Everyone!

The situation: "my" hardware engineer is wondering if there is anything
out there to convert OrCAD Gerber files to .pdf or .jpg for use in
Word. Since this may eventually end up on my desk, depending on how
busy he is, I thought I'd tap into the esoteric knowledge pooled here.

The hardware engineer has searched the Internet and has come up with
nothing useful - viewers and editors, but no converters.

I have searched the archives and found only "depressing" notes from the
spring and fall of 1998 that involve Frame (don't have and not getting)
or can't-get-there-from-here.

Has anything changed since the fall of 1998? Is there something out
there that will convert the Gerber files for use in Word? If it helps,
he is using Dialect RS274D.

This is not an urgent requirement (yet), but any help forthcoming would
be greatly appreciated by both of us.
