WIRE record

A WIRE record can appear after a LAYER record has been issued. A WIRE record specifies a single wire (path) data object.

The header flags field contains a value in the range 0-2 which sets the end style of the wire:

0 flush ends
1 rounded ends
2 extended square ends

This is the same as the pathtype in GDSII.

The WIRE record contains the following fields:

bytes field name purpose
4 width path width
? xy coordinate pairs (1 pair or more)
