Wating for return of custom M-code

17 Feb 2022 09:19 #235108 by Bocnc

I am struggeling with the behaviour of a custom M-code.
In short: I wrote a custom M-code which I need for a toolchange script (Remapped M6 to toolchange.ngc).
Within my toolchange.ngc I call the custom M-code (M130).
However, linuxcnc will not wait for the M-code to finish but immediately proceed with the subsequent code.


o<toolchange> sub

M130 P4
(debug, OUTPUT should be visible after M130 finished)
o<toolchange> endsub

while [ $test -gt 0] do
 sleep 1
 test=(($test - 1))
exit 0

The debug output gets printed immediately (and any following code). If I run the M script in a terminal while linuxcnc is running, the M file returns after X seconds.
Furthermore I can see that the run state of linuxcnc is active for X seconds but the toolchange.ngc does not wait for the M130 to return. Any ideas?

Just found the solution. The problem is, that the debug output gets printed immediately. However, if any motion comands are placed after the M-code, they get correctly executed after the M-Code finished.
