Retrieves a string array of the names of the bone nodes that a solver is acting on.

For a specified solver, this script returns an array containing the names (including paths, if desired) of the bone nodes that the solver is associated with.

The default format for each bone node is to provide the minimum path (top level node and the name of the bone), but the full path or just the name only can be specified.
