[Sidefx-houdini-list] get attribute from second input

 When you access attributes like this (i.e. With the 'op' syntax),  the assumption is that the ptnums match between the inputs.  So if you are accessing '@opinput1_Cd',  you are accessing the Cd attribute for the point which matches the ptnum of the point currently being processed (when in points mode).  In fact it doesn't make sense to access the 'ptnum' attribute at all,  as you know what it will be ( always 0 through numpoints-1).  Another way to think about it is that the wrangle is iterating over all the points,  and if you access an attribute from another input,  you are processing the same point number in that input.  If you want to access a different point number from the second input ,  you can use the 'point' function.
