Formats for saving and importing data
Path name
Punched tape format
The path name is automatically entered when files are saved
The path is named in the first line of a file:
When the file is re-imported into the control, it is stored in this path.
If no path is specified, the files are read in to the currently active,
selected directory or to the clipboard.
Example of file with path name:
N10 G0 X... Z...
Files can be saved to archive files in three different formats:
Punched tape/ASCII format
PC/binary format
Punched tape/ISO format
1. Only files with characters that can be displayed, i.e. files
created in the text editor, can be saved. No binary data,
however, can be saved.
2. Files in punched tape format can be edited with the text
3. Files can be set up externally in punched tape format
provided that they are formatted in compliance with the format
specified below.
4. If a file is set up manually, it must begin with %<name>. "%"
must be typed in the first column of the first line. An archive in
punched tape format may contain several files, each of which
must begin with %<name>.
