Using JOG commands with AXIS identifier

An axis can be jogged outside of the program it is attached. When used outside the program, the axis name cannot be used; the axis must be referred to by the "AXIS n" identifier where "n" is the axis number.

Example
Axis 0 is attached to Program 0 using the configuration wizard and given the axis name "X". In program 0 or at the P00> prompt, the axis can be referred to by X:
JOG FWD X
JOG INC X -10
JOG ABS X 25
JOG OFF X

When another program is used to control jogging, AXIS 0 must be used instead of X (notice that the axis identifier has moved to the front of the command):
AXIS 0 JOG FWD
AXIS 0 JOG INC -10
AXIS 0 JOG ABS 25
AXIS 0 JOG OFF

NOT RECOMMENDED!! AXIS 0 can be placed after the JOG commands, this can lead to syntax errors (which is why the correct syntax is illustrated here) and confusing code:
JOG FWD AXIS 0
JOG INC AXIS 0 (-10)
JOG ABS AXIS 0 (25)
JOG OFF AXIS 0
