  G-Codes - The tool path to follow;
The wiki is a great source for more details should you need them ...

G00 = Position (Fast speed)
G01 = Linear interpolation (Feed speed)
G02 = Circular interpolation (CW)
Format: X__Y__I__J__ I,J are relative distance from start to center. Incremental Z can be added for helical designs.
G03 = Circular interpolation (CCW)
G17 = Cancels G60 Command
G27 = Reference point return check
G40 = Tool Radius compensation off
G41 = Tool Radius compensation left
G42= Tool Radius compensation right
G60 = Switch data from Y to W * radius factor
G70 = Input in inches
G71 = Input in millimeters
G80 = Cancel Peck Drilling Cycle
G83 = Peck Drilling Cycle, Format: X____Y____Z____R____Q____P____F____
G90 = Absolute move (Modal)
G91 = Relative move (Modal)
G98 = Return to initial point in canned cycle
G99 = Return to R point in canned cycle
