I'll be damned if I can't find a simple 2-pin female header in Eagle Schematic libraries.  I'd like to be able to make a circuit to which I can later plug in a Force-Sensitive-Resistor Sensor.  So, I'd like to find a 2-pin female header but also need to know how this should be done on Eagle.  In other words, do I just draw the lines from VCC and the other to GND (including a resistor and a logic pin attached of course)?

I think you mean EAGLE, not EADLE? wink

 

I do not use Eagle much, but there certainly are two pin headers.  I am assuming 2.54mm(0.1 inch) pitch.  What libraries have you looked in?

If thats what your circuit is supposed to look like then YES.

I would use the PINHD-1X2 component from the standard "pinhead" library.
I guess that technically, these are for "male" pin headers, but the PCB requirements are quite similar.  (I guess you could find a female socket header that had a smaller lead and needed a smaller pad, and would work better with 3D visualizations, but I haven't needed either.)

The "samtec" library also has components for the "SSW" socket series.

You can search for "female header*" (without quotes), but they seem to begin at 5 in a row, for some reason.
