[02:45:55] <jepler> jthornton: try this on for size: http://emergent.unpy.net/files/sandbox/0001-emccalib-Fix-second-and-subsequent-tabs.patch
[04:43:44] <KimK> jthornton: (or anyone): Things are starting to settle down here a little bit after the move, so I can at least talk about helping with the docs again. Do you still want to separate out the g-code part of the user manual? Is there anything else I should be doing, besides the usual fixing typos, etc.? Should I be doing these things in v2_4 or master? Do you have any other advice for me?
[04:45:59] <KimK> I know it's late, I'll check back all day Monday for responses and advice on this. Thanks in advance.
[04:46:06] <dgarr> KimK: i put a modified version of tooledit with scrollbars for test at: http://www.panix.com/~dgarrett/stuff/tooledit.tcl
[04:48:44] <KimK> dgarr: Thanks, Dewey, I'll try it Monday. (I'd try it right now but everything is shut off.)
[04:49:24] <KimK> Well, wait, I've got 8.04 here now, don't I? Ha, I will try it now.
[04:52:39] <KimK> Oops, I forgot I was in the middle of something else. OK, it'll be a little while first.
[04:54:06] <dgarr> no rush -- just let me know sometime if it helps and if so i will submit a patch
[04:58:52] <KimK> I sure will. I'll try it in a few minutes on my desktop, and Monday on John's BP2.
[15:58:29] <micges> jepler: your emccalib patch works for me, but I think someone else should also test it
[16:00:56] <jepler> micges: was that what you were looking for me about the other day?
[16:01:14] <micges> no
[16:01:52] <micges> are you following cmorley changes to pncconf in 2.4?
[16:02:30] <jepler> no.
[16:02:41] <dgarr> micges: are you working on m67?
[16:03:41] <micges> dgarr: it should working, why?
[16:04:23] <dgarr> tp.c line 1241:
[16:04:23] <dgarr> int tpSetAout(TP_STRUCT *tp, unsigned char index, double start, double end) { return 0; }
[16:05:24] <cradek> that's never called
[16:05:50] <jepler> can it be removed?
[16:06:58] <dgarr> motion/command.c line1478: tpSetAout(&emcmotDebug->queue, emcmotCommand->out,
[16:06:58] <dgarr> 1479 emcmotCommand->start, emcmotCommand->end);
[16:07:38] <dgarr> m68 seems to work, m67 not in master
[16:07:53] <cradek> case EMCMOT_SET_AOUT:
[16:07:56] <cradek> emcmotAioWrite(emcmotCommand->out, emcmotCommand->minLimit);
[16:08:10] <dgarr> that one is m68 i think
[16:08:18] <cradek> what's the difference supposed to be?
[16:08:23] <dgarr> synchrony
[16:08:58] <cradek> does one require subsequent motion and the other not?
[16:09:07] <micges> synced aout (m67) doesn't work in master and 2.4, I forgot ot finish it :/
[16:09:43] <dgarr> i try to fix, alex suggested micges may be working on it, my take http://www.panix.com/~dgarrett/stuff/0001-Activate-m67.patch
[16:10:36] <dgarr> please review as i just tried to follow m62-63 pattern
[16:12:33] <micges> dgarr: when I worked on it, firstly it was rejected due braking some error checking, later I had wrong results with queueing m67/m68 commands
[16:12:55] <micges> dgarr: thanks, I'll check your patch later
[16:13:02] <micges> bbl
[16:13:45] <jepler> emc-devel-2010-03-02.log:16:43 <micges> for 2.4: patch adding synced analog output (m67) to motion queue: http://www.pastebin.ca/1820103
[16:13:59] <jepler> pastebin is expired, of course :(
[16:14:15] <jepler> emc-devel-2010-03-05.log:14:09 <micges> should be ok now: http://filebin.ca/zhzcyp/m67_v3.patch
[16:16:50] <jepler> that link seems to work
[18:46:30] <KimK> jthornton: I sent you a pm about working on the docs, hope you don't mind.
[18:47:41] <Jymmm> jthornton: I hold KimK down, and you kick his a55 for PM'ing you.
[18:49:23] <Jymmm> jthornton: (I've already fired up the tar tank, you bring the feathers)
[18:49:32] <jthornton> LOL
[18:54:18] <Jymmm> I guess tar back when wasn't hot, like it is today.
[18:56:19] <Jymmm> http://www.straightdope.com/columns/read/632/has-anyone-actually-ever-been-tarred-and-feathered
[20:54:41] <jthornton> jepler: I tried the http://emergent.unpy.net/files/sandbox/0001-emccalib-Fix-second-and-subsequent-tabs.patch but for some reason the patch errors out so I changed the three lines manually but the second and third tabs still are empty
[20:54:53] <jthornton> * jthornton goes back out to the heat and work
[20:58:21] <jepler> jthornton: hmph. did you make any changes to that file yourself?
[20:58:37] <jepler> fun fact of the day: the hex representation of the double-precision value closest to 25.4 is "6666666666663940"
[20:58:46] <jthornton> no, I made changes to a new branch the other day
[21:00:35] <jthornton> bbl
[21:01:30] <jepler> in ascii, that's 'ffffff9@'
[21:05:45] <Jymmm> jepler: So, what you're saying it metric is pure evil
[21:09:23] <Jymmm> jepler: Since 25.4mm == 1 inch
[21:27:10] <jepler> Jymmm: you are free to draw your own conclusion
[21:27:36] <Jymmm> * Jymmm kicks jepler off the fence
[22:00:48] <KimK> !later dgarr dgarr: tried your improved tooledit.tcl with scroll bars on my desktop, it works, thanks! Some difference about "Added..." vs. "added..." when I rewrote the table (sorry, was not looking at that and did not record what I did). It seems to round off 0.0000 (or whatever) to just 0 (prob OK), also it seems very unhappy with leading zeros in the tool number (prob OK) So overall, high marks, thanks again! (Will try on BP2 next.)
[22:20:57] <CIA-2> EMC: 03jthornton 07v2.4_branch * rf9d03c7f0bfd 10/docs/src/config/ini_config.lyx: typo submitted by KimK
[22:21:05] <CIA-2> EMC: 03jthornton 07v2.4_branch * r8604678a819b 10/docs/src/lathe/ (6 files in 2 dirs): add info on cutter comp and update tool positions
[22:23:43] <cradek> cool
[22:53:06] <jthornton> now I have to finish it
[23:15:37] <KimK> cradek: Hey, how about that, the typo test worked. I wanted to check something simple (to see if I was screwing things up) before sending a lot of invalid work to JT, lol.
[23:51:01] <KimK> !later dgarr dgarr: I just noticed (on my desktop) that I can open many instances of tooledit, if that is of any interest.
