LinuxCNC Python module was created by JT
The 2.9 docs show a status
axes (returns integer) - number of axes. Derived from [TRAJ]COORDINATES INI value.

When I try and get the axes I get the following error:
s.poll()
s.axes
AttributeError: 'linuxcnc.stat' object has no attribute 'axes'. Did you mean: 'axis'?

I looked in src/emc/task/taskinf.cc and can't find stat->axes anywhere, so was this removed or is the documents wrong?

Looking at the original commit for taskinf.cc and I see:
stat->axes = localEmcTrajAxes;

So someone removed it at some point... how frustrating.

Try 'axis_mask'

[edit]
This will not only give you how many axes there are but actually which ones (ie XYZABCUVW)

But, yes the reference to 'axes' should be removed from the docs .

First post, shows "axes" and below "axis"
Did you try to stat "axis" ?

I don't see why axes was removed as the [TRAJ] COORDINATES is still a valid and required ini entry.

It feels like axes was removed without any thought...

Oh i see, thank you.
I was thinking maybe a typo, made that mistake more than once typing on this forum, despite knowing "axis" is a single axis and "axes" is multiple. :)

Maybe because it was felt to be redundant information as 'axis_mask' actually gives you more information about the [TRAJ] COORDINATES entry.
The axis status gave you the number of axes without having to know new math... :(

I have no clue what happened to this post lol...
