    Sure. Find the ILDA standard document. It tells how. If you use LaserBoy I think it has a feature that will output to a text file which is probably the easiest.

    Its command line based, and last known to work on WiN 7. It only deals with type 0 and 1 formats. But long ago a friend wrote ILDAREAD and ILDAWRITE for me:

    Here is the standard, older version without 4 and 5 version.

    I'm the bastard who asked James to add text in and out to Laserboy.

    LaserBoy can read and write plain ASCII text files.

    I like the txt in txt out functionality a lot.
    It makes all kinds of crazy workflows possible.

    The Hilbert curve from wiki is in SVG format. Isn't there a way to convert SVG to ILDA? Maybe SVG to DXF to ILDA?

    If nothing else, you could pick out the 2D coordinates from the SVG data segment and reformat that into LaserBoy 2D text format.
