Allow more than 2 digits in the file extension of GPost

Aktually GPost it´s not possibly to create GPost fils with a file extension with more than 2 numbers.

An example for the actuell format is: uncx01.f01

 

In our company we have more than 99 machines therefore a problem with GPost.

The Idea is to extend the possible numbery, maybe to 4.

 

I refer to call 12999549

Re: Allow more than 2 digits in the file extension of GPost

Is the format that hard coded that you cannot change it to something like: HaasVF199.f86?

Which portion is limited to 99 numbers, the uncxXX or the fXX? If either of them allow a rename or both allow 99, then you have 99^2 combinations.

How many machine tools are identical and can use the same post-processor? We used to have 2 or 3 of each machine model and each machine model used the same post, so for 8 machines, we may have had 3 or 4 posts.
