wow, the cutter comp docs are pretty bad and/or out of date
no wonder people have trouble using it.
"put a pen in the spindle and then try guessing either G41 or G42 if you don't know left from right, and if you guess wrong, try the other one"
* jepler hears an offer to rewrite the docs
also "use R format arcs since EMC is too picky otherwise" is in the advice
(and of course it doesn't mention lathes at all)
I'm doing docs at work right now, so I'm a bit disgusted by the topic :/
I wonder if comp should be moved out of the interpreter
oh hmm, axis
how about UVW comp?
seems like I've had this conversation with myself before
yes it would be nice if it would work in G17.1
... and arcs
where the heck is this?

EMC: 03seb 07TRUNK * 10emc2/debian/emc2.files.in: add some missing files to the debian package so the build works again
EMC: 03cradek 07TRUNK * 10emc2/docs/html/gcode.html: I tried to rank these from least to most esoteric. I would like to move F and S up, but having an "Other" group makes it fit best at the end.
EMC: 03jepler 07TRUNK * 10emc2/src/po/it_axis.po: translation update
CIA-40: you're a bit behind, my friend
heh - I was wondering about that
