John,

Forgive me, but I am lost as to the meaning of "EN2002".

Is it somehow related to their (Mentor Graphics) current Expedition Series?

If so, it may be that you are better off looking for a "Cadnetix" netlist
generator, or even a "VeriBest" netlist generator, since the current
Expedition has decended from Cadnetix thru VeriBest, and is actually
unrelated to the former Board Station.
