14. FUNCTIONS TO SIMPLIFY
The pattern function means a function to punch multiple positions
conforming to a certain format by one-block command including G
function. This pattern function requires only one block command instead
of several-block commands, and thus, its program is simplified.
This control system prepares the following patterns as the standard
functions, which are used most frequently.

G code Functions Patterns
G26 Bolt hole circle
G76 Line at angle
G86 Share proofs
G89 Cut at angle
G26, G76, G77, G78, G79, G86, G87, G88 and G89 are
one-shot G codes.
