DPRNT for older CNC Machines

Check for DPRNT:

Fanuc:

If you have “User Macro B” in your Fanuc control, you can use the POPEN, DPRNT, and PCLOSE statements. On any Fanuc control, if you go to EDIT mode and type: POPEN then press INSERT, the CNCs that have the option will display the word just like it is shown. If it puts spaces between each letter, like this:

P O P E N

then the CNC doesn’t recognize the POPEN key word, and you don’t have the option.

Implementing DPRNT:
