Determining Location of the Gripper, Fibers, and Objects

The where command will give the coordinates of the gripper.
Fiborg 4.0.0 >where

gripper is at plate:  x =  89999  y = -89999  z =      0
                 sky:  x =  89834  y = -90165  z =      0
             encoder:  x =  89976  y = -90020
The default whereis command will give the coordinates of a fiber by its fiber number.
Fiborg 4.0.0 >whereis 64
object: #2226 "SKY                 "  fiber: 64 at slit pos: 30 
That object is at -26315 46102
Button #64 is at x = -26394, y = 46074 which is Extended
The whereis command can also be used to find a fiber by its slit position number with the s flag.
Fiborg 4.0.0 >whereis s 38
object: #318 "A2255...... 318     "  fiber: 118 at slit pos: 38 
That object is at -16898 -15674
Button #118 is at x = -16892, y = -15710 which is Extended
In addition, the whereis command will show the coordinates of an object using the o flag plus object number.
Fiborg 4.0.0 >whereis o 449
object: #449 "A2255...... 449     "  fiber: 138 at slit pos: 51 
That object is at -2332 -11582
Button #138 is at x = -2295, y = -11579 which is Extended
