Hello, I'm setting up a job here for a part the company runs every couple years. It was programmed a long time ago by someone who hasn't worked here in years.

There is two different blocks in the code that I don't recognize. one reads #101=5, and the other reads #101=6. Can anybody tell me what this means? Likely programmed 10 years ago. I will post an example below. My best guess is that it might relate to the sub program and tool number?
