The underlying LinuxCNC has only the functionality Tormach wants to support for their machines which from a product support point of view is the correct decision. They had no desire to become a linuxcnc support group and deal with all the varied things you could do in LinuxCNC and screw up your Tormach and expect them to fix it.

I understand this and I agree with their decision, so no problem with this.

I'd like to add some physical buttons for Run, Feedhold and Stop, and the examples I've found uses toggle2nist (and toggle). Since I'm very much a rookie when it comes to LinuxCNC (and only a little more experienced with Linux), I don't know what's the difference between toggle and toggle2nist and why they both are used/needed.
