PLANC (also known as the Programming Language for Numerical Control) is a programming language used to control machine tools and automate manufacturing processes. This higher-level language is designed to make it easier to program numerical control equipment, such as milling machines, lathes, or routers. PLANC allows programmers to create instructions for these machines through a series of commands that represent tool movements in space and time. The language has been superceded by languages like G-code, which remains the industry standard in many computer numerical control systems.
