1 Registered programs cannot be edited ; that is, registered
program cannot be newly registered, deleted, punched, or
2 A program can be created in up to six blocks. If the number
of characters in a block is large (about 30 characters or
more), the limit may be less than six blocks.
3 To erase all created programs, input : O <DELET>
Alternatively, set bit 7 (MCL) of parameter No.3203 to 1. All
programs are then erased when the system is reset.
The previous explanation of how to execute and stop AUTO operation
also applies to MDI operation, except that in MDI operation, M30 does
not return control to the beginning of the program (M99 performs this
Programs prepared in the MDI mode will be erased in the following cases:
In MDI operation, if M02, M30 or ER(%) is executed.
AUTO mode, if memory operation is performed.
EDIT mode, if any editing is performed.
Background editing is performed.
After the editing operation during the stop of MDI operation was done,
operation starts from the current cursor position.
Programs created in MDI mode cannot be registered.
A program can have as many lines as can fit on one page of the CRT
A program consisting of up to six lines can be created. When bit 7 (MDL)
of parameter No.3107 is set to 0 to specify a mode that suppresses the
display of continuous–state information, a program of up to 10 lines can
If the created program exceeds the specified number of lines, % (ER) is
deleted (prevents insertion and modification).
