Other Items Where Cutter Radius Compensation is Performed.

The complete set of canonical functions includes functions which turn cutter radius on and off, so that cutter radius compensation can be performed in the controller executing the canonical functions. In the interpreter, however, these commands are not used. Compensation is done by the interpreter and reflected in the output commands, which continue to direct the motion of the center of the cutter tip. This simplifies the job of the motion controller while making the job of the interpreter a little harder.
