Mint language uses high-level keywords to simplify the development of motion control and I/O control, networking and HMI tasks on automation equipment.

The most recent release, version five, added multitasking capability and other modular programming features such as functions and procedures, data types and scoped variables.

A key change was the introduction of Microsoft Windows as a development front end and machine interface.

The introduction of ActiveX components make it easier for engineers to interface to Baldor’s motion controllers and programmable drives from any programming tool supporting ActiveX, including Microsoft Excel and VBA (Visual Basic for Applications).

Mint is integrated with the Windows-based developers toolsuite, Mint Workbench, which is provided to developers without cost.

The fully integrated development environment includes program debugging facilities such as breakpoints, single-step program execution, variable watch, and auto-completion of code.
