Mach4 Lua for Dummies
« on: June 17, 2020, 05:21:53 PM »
Hopefully this will help anyone starting to write their own code in Mach4.
I am not a programmer and it has taken me some time to understand how all of this works.
I tried to put the information in here in a format I wish was available to us non programmers to understand.
I am fairly certain this is all correct.
Can those of you who know this well make sure I do not have any errors.

Hi,

Programmable Logic Control
In Mach4 it is a program that runs constantly in the background.
I think I explained it correct.
