Aliased codes are user defined G and M-codes that reference a macro program. There are 10 G alias codes and 10 M alias codes available to users. Program numbers 9010 through 9019 are reserved for G-code aliasing and 9000 through 9009 are reserved for M-code aliasing.

Aliasing is a means of assigning a G-code or M-code to a G65 P##### sequence. For instance, in the previous Example 2, it would be easier to write:

G06 X.5 Y.25 Z.05 F10. T10 ;

When aliasing, variables can be passed with a G-code; variables cannot be passed with an M-code.

Here, an unused G-code has been substituted, G06 for G65 P9010. In order for the previous block to work, the value associated with subprogram 9010 must be set to 06. Refer to the Setting Aliases section for how to setup aliases.

note: G00, G65, G66, and G67 cannot be aliased. All other codes between 1 and 255 can be used for aliasing.

If a macro call subprogram is set to a G-code and the subprogram is not in memory, then an alarm is given. Refer to the G65 Macro Subprogram Call section on how to locate the subprogram. An alarm occurs if the sub-program is not found.
