Probe Basic - Recent Rack ATC Implementation Example?

I have an ATC spindle and want to keep my tools in a straight line (rack/linear). Can someone point me to a proven, yet simple, rack ATC implementation for use with Probe Basic? I don't care to have the fancy GUI elements like the automated carousel. 

I'm aware of M6 remap, subroutine files, and the presence of the var file with numbered variables.

I've read a handful of posts on this forum, and browsed through a handful of github repos with examples and have tried implementing a few. But it seems like there is 20 ways to do the same thing with LinuxCNC (of greatly varying age), all which have none or partial documentation and usually no "how to's"

This is for my CNC router, running deb installed Probe Basic on 2.9 with Debian 12. Current using a simple parallel breakout, but have my Mesa 7I76E waiting to be installed. I'm very much an amateur with LinuxCNC.

Thanks.

There is not one currently that I'm aware of, but there may be some others out there that aren't posting. You can use any atc setup for rack and pinion if you find one, the atc page can be ignored in pb and just run it through macros..

so what do you think do you share it when you have a complete routine for a rack based atc?

you can write a desripton or a manual how to implate it. so other users where are happy.
