Future update removes commands - replacements needed

Discussion created by twadd on Nov 24, 2011
I am currently using a complex script which i have imported into ArcGIS 10.0 as a toolbox and which runs with no problems.

However, the script uses 'FeatureclassToCoverage_conversion' and '"command"_arc' e.g. CreateLabels_arc, commands which i know will not be brought forward with the new updates. In preparation for this i am currently trying to refine my script so that it will continue to work once Arcstation and coverage commands are removed from the software.

Therefore, this is my problem i am now having trouble to find existing commands which will still be present in future updates that do the same thing.

Below is a list of all the commands that need to be replaced:

gp.FeatureclassToCoverage_conversion
gp.CreateLabels_arc
gp.Reselect_arc
gp.Build_arc
gp.Dissolve_arc
gp.Eliminate_arc
