anyone have some progress, patches about 9 axis TLO? I'm writing it right now so they would help
micges_work: I was planning to write it soon
cradek: any plans for tool table file mess?
yes it will have to be completely different won't it
I have some ideas
bbl, have to get ready for work
micges_work: I clicked on limit, but nothing happened :(
I've disconnected it in hal
who was it that suggested that i add button(s) to the axis UI to start learning this....i have no idea what file/script/footstool to edit to get started
piasdom: as usual.. the docs
look for pyvcp
piasdom, that was me :)
but I think I said a menu item
SWPados; that's what i meant
told ya'll i'm lost :)
ok....Thanks...i'm off to read.
IMO, modifying AXIS is a terrible first project
(unless your goal is to learn how to modify AXIS)
hmmm. I thought adding a menu item was a relatively easy thing to do, but now I'm thinking maybe I don't know the source well enough to say that :)
I don't know which file to edit either (some tcl thing or some python thing)
no, the menus of axis were not designed to be customizable
but there have been changes, such as new things being added to the "machine" menu
if you want to add controls to axis, the main supported way is to embed a pyvcp in the right-hand side: http://www.linuxcnc.org/docview/html//hal_pyvcp.html#sec:pyvcp-with-axis
not in an ini-configurable way, but as a change to the program
welll ... of course you can change the menus by changing the program
./hal/drivers/mesa-hostmot2/encoder.c: char name[HAL_NAME_LEN + 2];
./hal/hal_lib.c: char name[HAL_NAME_LEN + 1];
./hal/hal_lib.c: char name[HAL_NAME_LEN];
./hal/hal_lib.c: char time[HAL_NAME_LEN + 5], tmax[HAL_NAME_LEN + 5];
without investigating it more closely, it seems that at least some of these different array sizes are misguided
I was reading a Slashdot thread that was nominally about a bug in the Motorola Droid autofocus system
apparently the autofocus only works right about half the time - on for 24.7 days then off for 24.7 days ...
it's an integer conversion bug on a millisecond counter
anyway, there was a great anecdote from someone about an off-by-one bug on a buffer length
apparently, printing a report wouldsometimes crash the program
on Wednesdays in September, after the 9th
the buffer was 1 byte too small for the longest month name + the longest day name + a 2 digit date
is there any problems to start use EmcPose struct in interpreter? or CANON_POSITION?
instead of what?
rayh: how is it going?
Keeping real busy. How about you?
hey there. long time no see
hah, now this is funny
I'm closing down a bunch of applications and may reboot my PC because it's getting very slow
(lots open - spreadsheets, browser, acrobat, Altium, AVR studio ...)
So I've closed down a bunch of stuff, and suddenly two identical dialog boxes pop up, asking if I want to install in English or Chinese
these are the dialog boxes from about 3 days ago when I tried to install a capacitor guide from Murata
and I ran it twice because I didn't see anything happen the first time
Um. Yep. Done a few things like that.
it wasn't that I missed it - it didn't pop up until now ;)
(I actually minimized all windows individually to make sure it wasn't hidden somewhere_
What OS did this to you?
it may have been Firefox actually
I ran it from the download manager window, and FF was in the process of shutting down when the dialogs popped up
it finally noticed them on its to-do list I guess
ugh. Mozilla is next. bbiab
rayh: seems everyone is pretty busy lately
[Global Notice] Hi all, one of our sponsors appear to be having some routing issues at present -- we're waiting for more information. Affected users 3000~ Apologies for the inconvenience and thank you for using freenode.
alex_joni: instead of tool_xoffset, tool_yoffset, tool_zoffset and so on
good night all
darn, I missed rayh
cradek: /msg memoserv send rayh Hi there
