EESchema Net Report?

I have found a lot of discussions on net names in EESchema, but nothing that answers my specific question, which is:
Is there a way to generate a net name report to be used for verifying connectivity? This is a common DRC tool in every other schematic tool that I have ever used, so it must be here somewhere.
The main purpose is to verify that I don’t have mis-named nets somewhere that will create disconnects (for example, P3V3 somewhere and 3V3 elsewhere accidentally).
Thanks in advance -

It looks like File > Export > Netlist allows you to define additional generators. From a little experimentation, the generator is sent the XML form of the schematic, and the element <nets> contains the netlist. It looks like this:

    <net code="1" name="+5V">

So somebody might have written an XSLT style sheet or Python program to take the XML and output a report in the desired format. Good luck.

You can also just update the board from schematic and then use the PCB Net Inspector tool.
