Can someone be so kind and write for me few lines of Python code and than explain what to do to have it working (Windows 7) ?
The task for program is: Remove GND net from KiCad Netlist file.
About Python I know only that such language exists and probably is the best choice to process the files like in KiCad.
At the beginning of my using KiCad I plan to do it manually and then to automate it. I can write it in C++ but I suppose Python program will be much shorter, as I suppose it has build in text processing, but not sure.
I expect problems when I come to generating Bom, and from KiCad documentation (I have read 6 months ago) I remember that there is a file containing all information and I shoud use python script to get what I need - so Python is in front of mine. I believe this deleting GND net example would help me start learning.
And why I need it. My PCBs are two layers with bottom 100% GND. During elements placement I get back to schematic many times mainly to reconnect wires from one microcontroller pin to another to allow me to have all connections on top layer. During placement I need to see connections I will have to route to unknot them, and GND is not among them. So each time I have new Netlist I would have to delete GND net.
Even I ask for software I put it under Layout category as it is not about KiCad software itself.
