x=0 ; for l in `cat foo.txt` ; do if [ $x = 0 ] ; then echo "$l" ; fi ; x=`echo $x + 1 | bc` ; done
Doesn't quite work, but you get the idea.
I saw it on the page
how about: head -n 1 $file
sed -e '1!d'<$file
head -n1 is just tooo easy.
so easy is not ok...

could I get one ?
* alex_joni will be going away for 2-3 weeks, time to test it ;)
* paul_c is working on 4.04

* alex_joni is gone home
how's your work on BDI going?
EMC no longer locks the box up if you do a shutdown (or exit X) whilst running.

cradek: well, I started working on i18n for AXIS, but I think all I've managed to do is horribly break my tree. Oh well.
I'm sure that's the first step
Is there an updated version ready for the next BDI build ?
chris was maybe going to do a 1.0b2 but I don't think that's happened
maybe after I'm back in town, which will be sunday night
see you guys later

6 hey pual
how goes it?
Been trying to crash the new install today.
None of the usual tricks have worked
* paul_c wonders if rayh has fallen off the edge...
Oooo... A new face
hello from the uk everybody
Using Branson's network ?
Currently two other Brits on line..
I stumbled upon the emc webpage after looking for info about where to start with my plans for building a cnc table to take a plasma cutter
so thought I'd pop on here to see if anyone else has done anything similar!
You want robin_sz for plasma
I'd hate to have to use M$ software to do it :(
well, I need a plasma cutter first and I've got to build a table! but the software is still vitaly important
His current offering doesn't use EMC though...
[20:46:53] <paul_c> http://www.rapidcut.co.uk/
are yopu in the uk paul_c?
and I can't spell again :(
could you recommend a linux cad package that would suit a cad novice?
I've looked at QCad and it looks decent
Qcad does 2D
that was all I was looking for for starters, I'd only be looking to draw out exhaust manifold plates and sheet stuff and suchlike
There's gCAD3D, but it's all in German
the ncie thing about qcad is the fact that the non supported version has no time limit
so I don't have to shell out any money
Can't recommend linuxCAD - Heard bad things about the company
Synergy shows promise, but it may be out of your price range
yeah, perhaps qcad then...
Guess 2D is all you need for routing
yeah exactly, the table I'd build for the plasma would only be x-y anyway
maybee with a z solenoid to raise/lower the torch...
SagCAD might be suitable
I guess I'll need a dxf to gcode compiler
unless I can drive the table like a plotter and simply 'print' my dxf files...
[21:00:04] <paul_c> http://www.tech-edv.co.at/lunix/CADlinks.html
If you can spit out hpgl, there is a utility to convert to G-code
anything wrong with going down the giant plotter route?
you thinking of something like http://www.isw.uni-stuttgart.de/personen/t_franit/modell/mixer.html
The guy's a loon
The landrover is a bit over the top...
why do you say that paul_c?
articulation is a little extreme wouldn't you say ?
na I wouldn't say so....
all a bit of fun isn't it....
good on him for making his own chassis though
anyway, I've got to pop off, thanks for your input paul_c, I'll be back
bdi-4.04 boots for the first time....
Pual - is .46 the latest release that is "stable" ?
Yup - You managed to break it ?
No - getting my Release 16 ready and want to build on the sable release
Bug hunting on the next version...
Hope you will give my release a run - need feedback
should be ready after the 1st
Lemme know when it's ready and I'll add it to the next build
Will do - finally got that playback mechanism running so it runs itself thru the help system
But it needs a menu entry for it to work with KDE
How/where do I plant that?
Alternatively, you could use /usr/share/applnk/EMC
and it would be under the same sub-heading as the EMC icons
Prob better if I leave EMC to you
in which case, I think Graphics would be the prefered choice...
websys, hi, this is mike.
hows it going?
still testing the latest bdi build
