[13:56:56] <cradek_> cradek_ is now known as cradek
[15:54:13] <cradek> wow, the cutter comp docs are pretty bad and/or out of date
[15:54:22] <cradek> no wonder people have trouble using it.
[15:57:08] <cradek> "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"
[15:57:34] <jepler> * jepler hears an offer to rewrite the docs
[15:58:01] <alex_joni> lol
[15:58:35] <cradek> also "use R format arcs since EMC is too picky otherwise" is in the advice
[15:58:46] <alex_joni> yuck
[15:59:15] <cradek> (and of course it doesn't mention lathes at all)
[16:00:41] <alex_joni> I'm doing docs at work right now, so I'm a bit disgusted by the topic :/
[16:00:48] <cradek> I wonder if comp should be moved out of the interpreter
[16:01:17] <alex_joni> moved where?
[16:01:20] <cradek> oh hmm, axis
[16:01:31] <alex_joni> how about UVW comp?
[16:01:34] <cradek> seems like I've had this conversation with myself before
[16:01:56] <cradek> yes it would be nice if it would work in G17.1
[16:02:09] <cradek> ... and arcs
[16:04:06] <skunkworks_> where the heck is this?
[16:04:29] <cradek> what?
[16:04:45] <alex_joni> * alex_joni introduces grep to skunkworks_
[16:04:55] <cradek> http://www.linuxcnc.org/docs/devel/html/gcode_tool_compensation.html
[16:09:40] <skunkworks_> alex_joni: that would be great if I was on a linux machine right now.. ;)
[16:18:45] <alex_joni> * alex_joni introduces unix tools to skunkworks_
[21:10:38] <CIA-40> EMC: 03seb 07TRUNK * 10emc2/debian/emc2.files.in: add some missing files to the debian package so the build works again
[21:56:10] <CIA-40> 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.
[22:03:02] <CIA-40> EMC: 03jepler 07TRUNK * 10emc2/src/po/it_axis.po: translation update
[22:03:14] <jepler> CIA-40: you're a bit behind, my friend
[22:04:37] <SWPadnos> heh - I was wondering about that
