Hello chaps
I am doing a bit of coding with parameters and having trouble getting mach3 to read them
I think it is a syntax error.
firstly do the normal operators ("+","","/","*') work on parms??
secondly what about boolean ?
What about "<" and ">" (smaller than and bigger than)
thirdly where do the brackets go?
this is one of the lines i am not getting
Plain english says #5 is equal to #3 minus 2 mm
coded as follows #5=#32 doesnt work ??
please help the manual is very brief on this subject is there ant other literature?
regards
fred

#5 = [#22]

sorry i didnt make it clear
values of parms are as follows
# 3=9
To get value of #5 I am looking for 92
#5 = #32 ( answer should be
value of #5=7)

Ha square brackets . Is that the secret?
Fred

#3 = 9
#5 =[#3 2]
