Can this program generate layout files in one of the Gerber formats used to program Gerber photoplotters?

Essentially all professional printed circuit board manufacturers expect each layer of the PCB to manufactured to be specified by a "Gerber" file, with additional files for the silk screens, solder masks, and - for surface mount
boards - the solder paste masters.

They also require a "drill" file - often in Excellon format - to specifiy the diameter and position of every hole
in the PCB, includings vias.
