Sending Multiple Programs Under One File Name - In the Advanced Editor, you can send multiple
program files via the RS232 port or a floppy disk, using the SEND RS232 or SEND FLOPPY commands under the
I/O menu (see the previous paragraph for how to do this). The Advanced Editor allows you to choose several
programs (select them using the cursor and the INSERT key) and save them under one file name that you type in; then
press WRITE/ENTER to save and send it.
(Any Lathe Control ver. 3.00 and above; any Mill Control ver. 9.49 and above.)
Sending a Program File from LIST PROG Display - You can send a file or files to a floppy disk or
through the RS-232 port from the LIST PROG display. Use the cursor arrows and the INSERT key to select the
program(s) you want, or “ALL” if you want to send all of them under one file name. When you press F2 to send the
selected program(s), the control will ask for a floppy file name, which can be up to eight characters long with a
three-letter extension (8CHRCTRS.3XT). Then press F2 again to send it. You can also use the I/O menu in the
Advanced Editor to send and receive program files.
