Something like DLL..., you are completely new to Linux, aren't you?

I did some projects for linux 10 years ago for FreeSWITCH VoIP (C# and C++ plugins), noob but not complete :) Today I spent a lot of time to issue with unity package, because I can't start it, and after investigations I found magical checkbox "run as software" ... :) ...

next step is installing "right" debian and linuxcnc binary package and check how it works ->(...)


Not sure, to be frank. Looking at ps output for userspace execution LinuxCNC, there are about 10 processes. Every so-called ULAPI component creates its own process (IPC done by shared memory segment). So basically you cannot tell that the "core" has exactly that number of processes.

But really for GUI purpose, what is most important for you is (where I would start) is the task coordinator - milltask. (And of course the NML variety of supporting processes. What creates channels and how they are consumed.)

And it has no significance which distribution you use. Just get the code from Github, get it to compile and start studying and hacking at it.

Take care when using google to locate resources. The firstlink id from V 2.5 so well and truly (possibly) obsolete.Its always best to go to the main documentation page and see if you can find the current version of the docs.

If old mate uses the Mint respin, the HTML docs are installed locally, these are the same that are linked on the Doc page. And of course the std pdf docs are installed as well.
