hello,

in a hal file I can write something like
setp stepgen.0.position-scale [AXIS_0]SCALE
to refer to a parameter definition in ini.
Can I do the same in ini somehow, like
[AXIS_1]
HOME_SEARCH_VEL = [AXIS_0]HOME_SEARCH_VEL 

thanks for help

Gerd

Have you tried this? I am curious and suspect that an experiment is the easiest way to find out.

Of course I tried, and it did not work straight away.:angry:
So I was hoping somebody knows the trick or has a workaround. :cheer:

I think it would be a good feature.

i'm looking into something like this, as i would like to setup all my three axis in one time, since they are all equal.
so i was thinking about using variables like one for the home position, one for the max velocity, one for max accel, and so on.

do you think is it possible?

thanks.

The amount of work to implement something like this might not equal any savings for not having to type a few numbers once per machine build...

ok, if it is really that big job...maybe its worth to investigate

what about include files ? could help also in some situations, especially for equal axis.

It might be worth investigating, you should give it a try. If you submit a working patch in the proper format to the developers mailing list in many cases the developers will add it.
