- Return point level G98/G99
When the tool reaches the bottom of a hole, the tool may be returned to
point R or to the initial level. These operations are specified with G98
and G99.
The following illustrates how the tool moves when G98 or G99 is
Generally, G99 is used for the first drilling operation and G98 is used
for the last drilling operation.
The initial level does not change even when drilling is performed in the
G99 mode.

- Repeat
To repeat drilling for equally-spaced holes, specify the number of
repeats in L_.
K is effective only within the block where it is specified.
Specify the first hole position in incremental mode (G91).
If it is specified in absolute mode (G90), drilling is repeated at the same
Number of repeats L
The maximum command value = 9999
If L0 is specified, drilling data is stored, but drilling is not performed.
- Cancel
To cancel a canned cycle, use G80 or a group 01 G code.
Group 01 G codes
G00 : Positioning (rapid traverse)
G01 : Linear interpolation
G02 : Circular interpolation or helical interpolation (CW)
G03 : Circular interpolation or helical interpolation (CCW)
