Are ASCII files always available on the controller?

  • Hi,

    Do you know if ASCII files like .LS and .VA are always available on the MD: drive for the equivalent compiled files even if the ASCII upload options are not installed?

    I'm aware of two ASCII related options:

    R796 - Ascii Program Loader

    R507 - Ascii Upload

    My googling suggests that both of these options allow you to LOAD in .LS files. I don't need this. I just need to be able to read .LS or .VA from the MD: drive via the FTP server for example.

    Can anyone clarify what exactly these options do and if they are necessary for .LS files to exist alongside .TP files on the controller.

    I'm not able to verify this with RoboGuide because the R796 option is forcefully installed when you configure a virtual robot.
