And yes I understand as a Powerfull scripting language teh programmer MUST have full control and be allowed to spawn threads at will as Sync and ASSync BUT we are talking a CNC macro language at this point not a full blown scripting language.

Also you well know that G04P0 can be your best friend EVEN in a macro at times. ONCE you understand what it actually does in teh script.

But there are times when Mach3 will not have full control over teh qued group of Gcode motion and it can get out of order as well.

You'd have to give me a concrete example of that before I'll bite  ;)

The next time I run into it I will send one your way.  I did run into it abut a month ago and I will see if I can find the example again. I used to think Grouping the Gcode together was a sure fired thing too but Mach3 proved me wrong again.

Look forward to seeing it if you find it.

Debugging code is one thing but trying to debug anecdotes is like trying to herd cats.  ;D
