The caching option (P4 += 2) is mostly used with large jobs on network connections.

There is also an option (via bit 1, value +2) to "cache" CNC files. With this option a temporary copy of the current job is made on the c: drive, and the control runs that temporary copy, but it is deleted and replaced when you load a different job.

Having a local copy while the job runs means that the job will not be interrupted if the network connection is lost while the job is running.

Having the local copy be temporary ensures that the control's hard drive space does not eventually fill up with very large one-off job files; and ensures that there is only one "master" copy of the file.

If the caching software feature is working correctly, then edits (F6/Edit) will open the original file over the network, and not the cached copy; and any time the original file has changed when you try to run it, then a fresh copy will be downloaded.
