The curly braces aren't really needed.

Heh. Of course not. And I should have just used a loop...

;)

Now, I have figured out what I was doing wrong, at least with regard to power nets...

Where I'm still scratching my head is on nets where the connection is not actually drawn in the schematic. For example I saw a schematic where there was a IC that fed into a terminal  block. Rather than draw all the lines the output from the IC was labeled and the connection on the terminal block were correspondingly labeled. This made the schematic less cluttered. But how did the nets get connected for use in creating the board layout?

Does my question make sense?

In Eagle, two nets with the same name are electrically connected, even if not visually connected by a wire.

Ok, that I expected to be the case. Now how to do this while while drawing a schematic?

Thank you.

Use the NAME tool to give the net a name (click on the NAME tool, then click on the net, then type in a suitable name). You won't see anything different. Then, use the LABEL tool, click on the net, then the name will appear. Use the mouse to position it on the net.

Another useful command is SHOW. Type "SHOW NETNAME" and the net with name NETNAME will be highlighted on your schematic.

Mr. Swarf

Thank you. I'll be trying that out tomorrow on a fresh design.
