Small problem while creating a Specctra .dsn file


Component names inside a net scope of a Specctra .dsn file must be
quoted, if they contain a hyphen, a round bracket or an empty space.

A user had the problem, that in his design the net N-000040 containing
pin 1 of the component SEN-1 and pin 2 of the component R39 described
by the scope

(net N-000040
(pins SEN-1-1 R39-2)

was not correctly read into the FreeRouter.

If this is changed to 

(net N-000040
(pins "SEN-1"-1 R39-2)

by adding quotes to SEN-1 everything works correctly.
