Lua scripting manual has been removed, use the Mach4 API help file.

The "Mach4CoreAPI.chm" is located here in your Mach4 install folder:

YourDriveLetter:\Mach4Hobby\Docs\Mach4CoreAPI.chm

The help file is UP TO DATE per release of Mach4, there have been many, many changes since the scripting manual was done, and it is now been depreciated and its thread removed to not cause confusion to new (or existing) users.

very nice idea to convert to pdf but the whole idea of pushing to use the api docs was that in each release they would be upto date, unfortunately after another release your pdf will be superceeded by a new api docs thus being outdated.

Yup... I fully understand that. My problem is I don't like .chms so I usually build a PDF so I can use the features of PDF and access the file easier on my phone, I just assume that some people are like me and understand it might not be the latest
