+
+==== M578: Fire inkjet bits ====
+
+***This command is not enabled unless the SUPPORT_INKJET feature is enabled when the firmware is built.***
+
+***Parameters***
+
+* ***Pnnn*** Inkjet head number
+* ***Snnn*** Bit pattern
+
+***Example***
+
+* M578 P3 S5
+
+This fires inkjet head 3 (the P field) using the bit pattern specified by the S field. The example shown would fire bits 101. If the P parameter is ommitted inkjet 0 is assumed.
+
+This is a version of the M700 command used by [http://reprap.org/wiki/Inkshield].
+
+An alternative way of controlling inkjets would be to use the P parameter on the G1 command, in conjunction with the M670 command.
