is the source code of any of the wizards .i.e cut circle;  available?
are the wizards propriety or open-source?

Open the wizard, click Operator > Edit Button Script, and click the buttons, and the script editor should open and show you the code in the buttons.

A wizard is really just a screenset. You create it with a screen designer, and add code just like in a screenset.

Yep.  ;D

You should strive to always be learning.
CNC is my day job, and even after 20 years, I learn new things all the time.
