The tables with software actions are a good pointer for what a certain program does with various file types and often may give users a good hint how to perform certain file conversion, for example the above-mentioned gbr to pdf. However, it is not perfect and sometimes can show results which are not really usable because of how certain programs work with files and the possible conversion is thus actually not possible at all.
gerber2pdf.py is a Python program that converts Gerber files (used to fabricate printed circuit boards) into a PDF document that can be viewed and printed with the freely available Acrobat viewer. Gerber files must conform to the RS-274X specification.
GerbView supports both RS-274D and RS-274X Gerber formats, and you can use it to convert your older Gerber files to the new RS-274X standard format, which most PCB producers prefer to receive.
