I must be doing something wrong here. I got the M-Codes working as I cant verify them by a text prompt however I can not get the output part to work. Can someone tell me the what the magic is thats required? Here is what I am using. If I uncomment out the display text part it will display the text dialog box so I know the m-code itself is working just not the actual output. Do I need to define that output in hal first for this to work?
#M110
#!/bin/bash
zenity --info --text="M110 - Quill Out"
halcmd setp hm2_5i25.0.7i77.0.0.output-11 True
exit 0

Actually its sort of the opposite, you cannot have the pin connected to a
driving source in the HAL file or the setp will fail

I would just do the:

halcmd setp hm2_5i25.0.7i77.0.0.output-11 True
halcmd setp hm2_5i25.0.7i77.0.0.output-11 False

in a terminal to verify that it works first

Did you try from the command line?
Is the pin true?

Command line works fine. Mcode does not work.

So does running the script by hand work?

I am not sure if it does. I did however put a line in there to give me a text dialog to be sure it was actually running the macro and it displays the text. It just wont switch the output.

I guess I was suggesting that you try running the script by hand first...
also piping the output of the halcmd to a file or log might help,
maybe this is as simple as a path problem

By hand you are referring to from the command line correct? I am not sure how to pipe it to a file or log. I am baffled that I have the mcode confirmed working based on the text dialog and the line I am trying to run working in command line but they both refuse to work together. What if I named the pin in hal and then switched the name to true? I am guessing that wont work either since from what I read you must access the pin directly?
