We are using Linux EMC 2 and it doesn't seem to accept gcodes containing the comments that have the ;'s in front of them.
Could you place the comments between ()'s?
This way even Linux EMC 2 accepts the gcode directly.

    Hi Peter,

    I am using EMC 2.4.6 (and was using some 2.3.x version before), but I never saw any warnings.
    Where did you notice a problem?

    Right now I took a look at the EMC GCode manual again and found a positive reference regarding semicolons:
    http://www.linuxcnc.org/docview/html/gcode_overview.html#r1_14
    Strangely they are not mentioned here:
    http://www.linuxcnc.org/docview/html/gcode_main.html#sec:Comments

    If you can tell me how to reproduce your problem, then I will gladly change the comment style. But for now the semicolon is just much more convenient from a programmer's point of view :)

    cheers,
    Lars
