Aug 25, 2010 Gcode differences

I did not know that reprap host and skeinforge make considerably different gcode. There seems to be 5 to 15 different M codes for setting the temperature of a given extruder. And trying to use the gcode of either with my machine is proving... difficult. I know that the Gcode in the firmware I'm running is sketchy, I guess I'll have to fix all that now to make sure any Gcode will run. Since I've already devoted myself to using skeinforge, I'll start there with Gcode compatibility in the code. In addition I think the tool head is too far from the platform, and 240C is yellow too hot.
