Nah, its just a text file so its cross platform.

Some stuff i found out today regarding PlasmaC and Inkscape:
Info:
-latest build of Plasmac for Stretch
-latest Inkscape on Linux Mint 19.3
-Inkscape gcodetools.py modified to export plasmac.feedrate
Additional info:
gcodetools for Inkscape will output gcode fit for use with PlasmaC as is, as such it will add % at the start and end of the file and that also works properly, it also adds M3 at the top of the file that has to be removed, using PlasmaC Wizards allows for rotating such file but will not allow multiplying it.
Fix:
In the folder that Inkscape is set to save gcode, create two empty files, name one "header" and leave it empty, name the other "footer" and edit it by adding "M30", save.
Now exported gcode files will not have the M3 at the top of the file, and PlasmaC Wizards will do rotate and multiply on all files exported by Inkscape.
All this should also be valid for use with QtPlasmaC.
