Just read the programs on the wiki to see how I and others have done it. Several folks have taken one of my g-code generators and modified it to do what they wanted.

There are no manuals or tutorials that I know of for writing a g code generator.

Thanks. I understood. Is there much more handy editor with debug posibility, to modify .py scripts (build forms with the buttons and other controls), than gedit?

I actually prefer gedit for editing my python files. I add the plugins External Tools, Python Console and Snippets from the preferences menu. As for a RAD I prefer Code::Blocks.

For forms design with buttons and control you can use glade

I've installed Glade, but it can open only .glade files not .py
Also I have installed Eric python IDE, Boa constructor, DrPython (PIDA and Stani's editor will not start) . Tried to open drill.py (first simple genrator in list, on the wiki). And none of the editors don't showed me main frame of script to edit controls.

The way a glade - python toolchain works is like this:

You design your GUI in glade and create an xml file.

In py, you open the xml, and create references to your graphical objects.

google for "python glade" and you will find documentation, tutorials etc

I use code::blocks for my c++ programs and gedit for python.
