    extracta and .pad files Reply

    Hello,

    Is it possible to use extracta to extract some data directly from .pad files, such as shapes or thermal relief names ?

    I am using Allegro 16.5

    I don't think that there is an extracta method, you could use "pad_designer.exe -nographic -s <script_file>.scr" where script_file.scr contains:

    setwindow form.padedit

    pse_open

    fillin "<pad_file>.pad"

    pse_summary

    setwindow text

    save

    fillin "<report_file>.txt"

    close

    setwindow form.padedit

    -You would need to build the scripts to dump a list of pad files from a given directory and then look at the pad files generated - you can also get the report from the pad_designer UI on a pad by pad basis.

    Hello,

    Thanks for your answers.

    Finally, I found a solution: I used the following command:

    report -v pad <padfile.pad> <outputfile.txt>

    This command outputs a file in csv format that contains all informations I needed, and even more...
