I think I saw that yesterday, but I'm up to my butt in malfunctioning
g-code ATM. Worse, I am the original author, but before I can really
put this thing to work, I need to validate that it will run valid gcode,
any of it, that I throw at it. But I just discovered that I need a
string variable in a conditional statement. And linuxcnc does NOT have
such a critter that I know of. I can make it work, but it will take
about 20 more LOC, going the wrong direction in the LOC dept. I like to
simplicate where I can.
So no, I've not tried it yet.
