I was reading the pdf hal manual, found a few issues
1) "blocks" is deprecated in favor of individual components that do everything blocks can do (and more)
2) most of the examples in the tutorial are in the same proportional font as the main text, instead of typewriter font
the font is correct in the current released version, wrong in the development version
cradek: what is the reason that G10 L1 couldn't set front angle and back angle of tool ?
EMC: 03bigjohnt 07TRUNK * 10emc2/docs/src/gcode/images/offsets.png: add image
EMC: 03bigjohnt 07TRUNK * 10emc2/docs/src/gcode/ (coordinates.lyx coordinates_fr.lyx main.lyx): add info on g10l2, g54 and minor edits

should we revert freqgen so it works, or remove it, or something else?
odd. the code looks correct to me
hal_pin_bit_new(buf, HAL_OUT, &(addr->phase[STEP_PIN]), comp_id);
halcmd: loadrt freqgen step_type=0,0
HAL: ERROR: pin direction not one of HAL_IN, HAL_OUT, or HAL_IO
HAL_OUT sure looks like one of those
ah - dirsetup
yep - dirsetup, dirhold, steplen, stepspace
well, it's a simple fix, so I guess I'd fix it. also I'd add a message (WARN level probably) saying freqgen is deprecated
of the three (fix, revert, remove) fix would be my third choice
mostly because it's so easy to get wrong
this is a pins-to-params change that broke it? if so, remove
freqgen is deprecated, it's dumb to add new features to it
yes right of course
should I remove any freqgen examples from the HAL tutorial in 2.3?
it would be better if the examples used non-deprecated components
but it shouldn't be done by search&replace, because then it's likely to not work
they would have to be redone and tested for sure
looks like mostly the 1.5. example is where it is used
shall I commit the fixes?
the params need to be IN pins, which can't cause any errors since they were never connected to signals before (as params)
so that's a trivial fix IMO
then again, we haven't heard a single complaint since the param-to-pin change, which means there's nobody using it, escept for the tutorial :)
dallur-thc uses freqgen
revert the param-to-pin changes?
the log says it took us six tries to get params changed to pins in pid.c
well, can one of you guys do that then? it would take me an hour to figure out how :)
(and another 17 seconds to do it)
EMC: 03jepler 07TRUNK * 10emc2/src/hal/components/freqgen.c: revert to 1.30 -- users desiring the conversion to pins or higher precision should switch to stepgen.
EMC: 03jepler 07TRUNK * 10emc2/src/hal/components/freqgen.c: note deprecation status
Heh - for some reason I was reading pwmgen - I was thinking 'wait - don't do that'
uh oh now I'm in trouble
you touched it last?
-- how is it that the tests were passing before? are only certain ctrl_types busted or something?
I bet so - 'dirsetup'
EMC: 03jepler 07TRUNK * 10emc2/tests/modparam.0/expected: revert to 1.1 since freqgen was reverted too
cradek and I were talking at lunch about which days we'll travel to and from stuarts
I think we've decided to travel on thursday the 21th and thursday the 28th
if cradek takes the bus it seems like the travel will probably eat up most of the daylight
and that doesn't include the time used up by all the repairs
at least there'll be a machine shop at the end of the road :)
or the hourly stops for diesel
I've been saving my WVO for you cradek
BJT-Work: do you deliver?
jepler: as far as Stringtown
BJT-Work: we'll need four 55-gal drums halfway between Lincoln and Wichita please
don't know if that will fit in my saddlebags
maybe four barrels in each would be smart
I can fit .357 barrels and .44 barrels and a few .45 barrels in the saddlebags
are you going to fest in wichita?
don't know at the moment
we all agree you should
about 8 hours by google maps
where are you coming from?
Poplar Bluff, MO
they even have most of the roads paved now to Springfield
looks like a better chance this year than last year
that's the wrong corner of mo for you to carpool with jon elson
yep, I'm in swamp east MO :)
where is jon elson from?
3 hours north of me
* BJT-Work heads out to the pond to do some fishing
talk to you guys later
google maps thinks it would only add 1 1/2 hours to the trip
8:17 vs 9:36
jon E often travels in a very full van (people and stuff both)
I'm sure the wife and kids would love to go to Wichita
during the school year
hmm - that isn't really that far away..
yes it is :)
about 3 more hours of driving..
ok - 4 hours
* skunkworks wonders what airfare would be..
how many hours altogether is that?
not too bad..
