Javascript post processing

This is a test to see how javascript could work for post processing. In the left textarea, add terms like 'g0(0,0,0)' for rapid moves, 'g1(1,0,0)' for feed moves and then press the 'Post' button to get some GCode in the right textarea box. Some of you might wonder why? This is just a test for something bigger.

g0(x,y,z) - rapid

g1(x,y,z) - feed move

g2(x,y,i,j) - clockwise arc - i,js in absolute coordinates

g3(x,y,i,j) - counter clockwise arc

feedrate = 33.0 - feedrate

I tried to make things modal, so that unneeded terms aren't repeated. At some point the post processor needs to reside on a client machine as an html5 local file. I have a lot to learn... GCode Post Processor
