GRBL Laser Mode $32 in Post Processor

This is a Vcarve post processor question.

I’m planning to use the J-tech no-z post processor for my laser. I looked it over and there is no $32=1 (Laser Mode) in that post processor. Can I treat “$32=1” as gcode and enter it into the startup section?

If that works, I could add $32=0 to my normal post-processor. That way I can never worry about setting it or resetting it. I can’t check the machine directly at the moment since it’s torn apart with the spindle upgrade project.

Just put it in the Header section before any motion commands.
"$32 = 1"
"$32 = 0"


That’ll be great. Thanks
