If statement confusion

I've been reading about o codes and parameters so I can edit or make macros, and I've been struggling to figure out what the following subroutine from my toolchange macro is doing: 
o<010> if [1 EQ 1]
  ...some code
o<010> endif
It looks like it's always going to be true because of course 1 is equal to 1. There's no # to indicate a parameter. What am I missing?

You are absolutely right, it will always run.
It's probably just left over from a code change that never got removed.

This is a way to turn on or off a block of code. You would edit the file to be "If 1 = 0" to disable that block.

I am actually a bit more puzzled by the O<010> structure, apparently using the named-block syntax with a numerical value. It works, I suppose, but looks strange.

Oh, well that's anticlimactic lol. Thanks for clarifying.

I'm not really sure why that subroutine is numbered 010, it's from the probe basic set of macros and subroutines. Must have made sense to them at the time.
