this is a test of a simple g code program that embedded macros for multi spindle drills under Mcode representing mfuncXX.mac

here are the multi spindle drills running one by one or sets of two and three, they can be configured by just changing the Mxx number that represent every drill.
in every macro is determined the offset position for that drill from origin, followed by the G91 it position that drill where it needs to be.
so when the Mxx code is called in the program each drill search it's position. that is the best way i could find when using a cad/cam software like Vcarve.

i laso had to create a new post procesor to generate drill programs separate.

maybe some one has a better solution for this operations?
