Factory Interface Language (FIL™)
The FIL utility extends the user's ability to customize each individual postprocessor. FIL modifies the postprocessor's input (CL file data) to generate the desired machine code. FIL allows users to:
- Add, delete, or modify CL file data
- Alter postprocessor output
- Add or modify APT vocabulary words
- Read or write data into or from files (up to two files)
- Call other applications
This is done by writing a filter file called uncl01.fnn (for lathe G-Posts) or uncx01.fnn (for mill G-Posts). The "nn" in the file name represents the machine number you used with the option file you already have. More detailed information can be found in the FIL manual which can be ordered online by clicking the Order link.
