I have a simple script from a while ago, I now try to run in V5 rc. (from ~ March ?)
This is not a complex task - it generates a netlist, by part scan, then net-scan.
It seems to strangely cough on items that used to work in previous main release ?
footprint = part.GetFPID().GetFootprintName()
fails but this replacement seems ok
footprint = part.GetFPID().GetLibItemName()
nNodes = Net.GetNodesCount()
for pad in Net.Pads():
Google finds some chatter maybe related to the last one here
that seems to talk about a patch to enable net->pads access.
ie I think that is what has suffered a regression here
Is the python access being reduced over time (rather than expanded ?)
Any suggestions for fixes to the above ?
