Yup, I get those periodically, and got one today on M3.m1s.  The fix is usually to open the offending file with Notepad, and you should see a few garbage characters at the end of the file.  Delete those, and save it, and the problem should go away.

spindlespeed.m1s does actually have a syntax error in it, in some versions of Mach3, yet it does not always generate an error message.

That, too, is, sadly, consistent with my experience.  I believe something is happening inside Mach3 that causes this, as the same script will throw an error one time, and not the next.  Sometimes editing the script will help, sometimes not.  I've got quite a number of conditions that pop up more or less randomly, that require re-starting Mach3 to restore proper operation.  It is my great frustration with Mach3 - I can go days at a time and everything will function perfectly, then I'll have a day where I have one bizarre problem after another, and I can't get any work done.

What version of mach3? I use an old version, and have never seen this error.

Gerry,

I couldn't tell you when this issue first cropped up, but it's been around a couple of years, since at least 3.042.022.  I'm now using 3.043.053, and have used dozens of intermediate versions.

Hiya Ray there is a reason that a lot of us stay at the 3.042.020 version or very close to it.

Ain't that the truth. I just can't understand why subsequent releases have been made without thorough beta testing. Personally I wouldn't go near them with a barge pole.
