07:59 PM andypugh: Interesting question from the forum, what is “NCMS” ?
07:59 PM andypugh: It is referenced a lot in the source-code: https://github.com/LinuxCNC/linuxcnc/search?utf8=✓&q=ncms&type=
08:00 PM andypugh: Sorry, let me try again without a wierd character in the URL: https://github.com/LinuxCNC/linuxcnc/search?q=ncms&type=

08:05 PM andypugh: Hmm. I already found http://ws680.nist.gov/publication/get_pdf.cfm?pub_id=823374 from that, but the page-number references do not seem to match the source-code comments
08:05 PM skunkworks: I have strong google foo...
08:13 PM andypugh: Strong enough to find the referenced document?
08:22 PM skunkworks: that doesn't make sense..
08:22 PM skunkworks: let me see if I can find it
08:25 PM andypugh: It turns out that the “The NIST RS274NGC Interpreter” document contains the text “Part Programming Functional Specification (RS-274/NGC); Draft; NCMS;” but is not the referenced document
08:28 PM skunkworks: http://www.mattshaver.com/NCMS_RS274NGC.pdf
08:29 PM skunkworks: maybe?
