Re: [sch] BUS with different signal names



Yes, you partially misunderstood. I would like to code this feature
myself (when I was writing previous email I haven't this in mind).

As I see I have to code it into netlist.cpp, which then creates 
connections not regarding bus member prefix. If this is not
the right way, then I am asking for some help.
