METRIC / SAE Indicator for pyVCP

The read-ahead shouldn't make much difference... it is more of a flag, it is more of a flag when in manual entry mode so you don't type G0 X10 expecting 10mm and get a surprise when it goes 10 inches instead.

When code is running... you are more or less just watching the show... it's when you are manually doing things... that's when it gets interesting.

it can be important if you stop/abort a program and then restart in the middle.
I agree that metric/imperial settings are rarely changed in the middle of a program.

                elif i == 200:
                    metric = False

Isn't this more Pythonic:
metric = True if 210 in s.gcodes else False

yes it is.
My example came from code in gscreen which parses gcode for different reasons.
I was not trying for the best code, just an example.
