Comparing Gerber files

I recently ported a project from Eagle to KiCAD and would like to check that the KiCAD-generated Gerber files are (effectively) equivalent to the original Gerber files from Eagle.

I didn’t see anything like this in KiCAD itself – does anyone have suggestions for a tool or methodology to help with this type of task?

My current thought is to manually load them into some Gerber viewer, export as images and do some sort of image compare to find differences, but I’d prefer not to reinvent the wheel.

Just view the two files overlaid in a Gerber viewer, with 50% transparency, and two different colors. Any objects that don’t exactly overlap will be obvious.


The best option to check the differences would be in XOR
