Examples 

Scale gcode to 75% of the original size. Resulting in a new file rose_scaled_75.svg

gcodescale -i rose.gcode -s .075

Move gcode 100 units to the left and 75 units up. Resulting in a new file rose_translated.svg

gcodescale -i rose.gcode -t x:-100,y:75

Combine translating and scaling by scaling to double size and moving 200 units to the right. Resulting in a new file rose_scaled200_translated.svg

gcodescale -i rose.gcode -s 2.0 -t x:200
