SVG export: What is the "gorn" attribute?

Matt Gilbert 4 years, 3 months ago

I'm trying to process exported svgs of PCBs, for which I need to understand the svg attributes. One attribute that appears to be added to cumstomized parts is called "gorn". The attribute value is a string of numbers that looks something like a version number or an IP address, for example "0.1.0.0.2". I suspect that it's a transform matrix, but I can find no documentation for an svg attribute called "gorn" anywhere. Can someone explain what it is?

 

Here's an example. This PCB has one part with no "gorn" attribute, and 2 customized parts that do have a "gorn" attribute: http://pastebin.com/j79VztEM

I'm on the same track, lookup 'gorn address' on wikipedia. I still don't know exactly what tree the objects are a part of.
