English term or phrase: inline position
Modifying the position in a positioning instruction..
• Move the robot to the desired position.
• Select the instruction that is to be changed. For instructions containing more than one
position, e.g. MoveC, select the position argument to be changed.
• Press the function key ModPos or choose Edit: ModPos.
Note. An answer must be given to the password check and confirmation dialog if they have been set to active in the configuration. The default set-up is no password but with confirmation.
The maximum movement/reorientation of a position can be limited in the system parameters. If this has already been implemented, the system parameters must be changed in order to allow any greater changes of position. See Chapter 10 System Parameters - Topic: Teach Pendant.
The old position is replaced by the current position of the robot. This position is related to the current tool and work object.
Note. If a named position data is modified, all other instructions which refer to that position data will also be changed.
Note. If the robot is stopped by pressing the stop-button and thereafter a ModPos is performed on the current move instruction, the robot restarts on the next instruction, i.e. PP is moved to the next instruction on ModPos. This means that for move instructions with process-related actions "at the end of the movement", like SpotL/J or MoveL/JDO, the process part is not done.
Note. If a position argument is given as an ****inline position*** i.e. *, and the programmer wants to exchange the ***inline position**** with a named position e.g. p5. Please observe that the position data contained in the ***inline position*** data is not copied to p5. Upon creation of the new p5 variable, the p5 position is set to current robot position.

English translation:position calculated by an inline function
Explanation:
I think this refers to inline-functions (as in C++) explained here: http://www.parashift.com/c -faq-lite/inline-functions.html#...

So in your context this means: If the programmer wants to exchange an inline posistion (i.e. a position that is calculated by passing on certain parameters to an inline-function) with a named position (p5) then the data (i.e. that what would be calculated in this particular process step) cannot be copied in the named position p5 and instead the current robot position is copied into p5.

Here's a text (on Lego-Robot-Programming) where inline-functions are explained: http://users.ncable.net.au/~blane/smartParts/0402n6.htm

neutral  Ken Cox: Although I'd say it doesn't necessarily have to be calculated by a function (inline or otherwise). 'Inline' means the position (or whatever) is embedded in the code, instead of being identified as a variable (named position) or passed as a parameter.

  -> True Kenneth, that's very well possible. I just thought that (1) including abslute position data in code is not very neat programming and (2) if the position was specified in the code, why should the editor not be able to copy that data into a variable?
