Hi Fred,

There is lots of useful information on Bob Warfield's site http://www.cnccookbook.com/CCCNCGCodeCourse.htm

A Google search for GCode tutorials should also bring a good return.

Fred,

The best tool you can purchase to learn more about how to use g-code is a book.  http://www.amazon.com/Programming-Handbook-Third-Peter-Smid/dp/0831133473

This book will teach you all you need to know about programming with G-code.
