Loading .dxf files

Hi, everyone!

Has anyone found a spec (or better yet, even some C++ classes) on how to load dxf files? I’ve found lots of indications that the Alias OpenModel format is intended to be…well…open for programmers to use, but I’ve searched the Maya website and the rest of the web and haven’t been able to find any specs to describe it.

Has anyone else had better luck?


I thought dxf was an open CAD format done
by AutoDesk.

Anyway, it’s described at www.wotsit.org
in quite some detail.
