Trust me Craig IF I could do it you would never hear a word out of me on such matters. I would be too busy to chat.

You do know that one does NOT have to do anything I am just describing functions that have proven very usefull over time  ;D

You can ether have a LEXUS or a Model T for a controller which would you like to have.  >:D

Yo HAVE taught me a great deal through examples , and I can take those and make things AS LONG as I have enough examples to work with.

NOW do you know how to install socket moduals into LUA. I need access to the Socket.smtp in order to send alert Emails from Mach4. Native LUA has no such function as far as I can find.

GEES even the lowly CB language can do that  :o

Brian Should  be able to provide a LIST of ALL the #vars in mach4 AND their description/function. He had to create them so there should be a list.

Just a thought, (;-) TP

OK I do not think we can use Socket moduals here as Brian would have to include them in his Distributable file.

I think, (;-) TP

No dought the Var monitor works well I am very pleased to have it. Very hard to test complex parametric code without it.

AND paramateric Gcode in MACH4 WORKS VERY WELL as well.

so far there are some things that do have some merit, but this learning curve is trial and error most of the time.

YES it is without DOCUMENTATION. Like wondering in the Desert looking for the OASIS

Here is a NEW Thread Milling Wizard.

Or perhaps a new Circular Pocket Wizard. The new G12/13 routines made that one easy .

AND YES I did steal that image(;-)

I do wish the Lua Editor was a bit more friendly. All the crashing makes it HARD to get anything done when it is time to test your code

All the whining about Lua and two weeks later he's spitting out wizards. Must not be that hard. ;)
