If I have say a 50 pin connector and want to add nets and labels for
each pin; how do I do this quickly?

I saw a video guide for Eagle where they first added the first pin's net
then magically added all the other pins in one go. Unfortunately they
didn't comment or explain how this was done, or if it was just a matter
of editing out the adding of all those other pins. It would sure save me
a lot of time if's possible though.

If I want a connector for a very specific use, I make a copy and rename
the pins either at the symbol or the device, depending on how you want
it to look.

I prefer doing it on the symbol only. This also enables you to set IO
directions according to the connector use.

Unfortunately Eagle does not support user-configurable pin names, wich I
think would be very useful especially for FPGA use, where pin funcions
may change during the design phase.
