Execute OS Commands?

Is it possible in the Start/Stop GCODE to execute a command from the operating system?

My ShopVac is remote from my CNC machine and I control it via WiFi. I can issue an OS command to start and stop the vacuum – which I usually remember to do before I start a milling job, but it’d be great if I could issue an M8 or M9 (or similar) and re-direct that to a macro that’ll execute an OS command.



Not currently. It’s something we’ll look at eventually but it’s a niche enough use case that we’ve had other things to focus on.
