Help.
The assembly house for my pcbs is asking for GenCAD formatted output. They
have sent instructions for Mentor and Orcad on how to output Mitron GenCAD
formatted files or "Neutral Files", but have never heard of Eagle and don't
find instructions for it in their Aegis Software guide.

The files outputted by either Mentor or Orcad have a .cad suffix. Or for
the neutral file it's .neu .

Thanks,
Dave
