    I'm not sure I totally understand the question but don't all CAM programs generate the same commands in Gcode format? A peck drilling option is in there and you can specify the drilling requirements.

    I think he means converting the canned cycle (G83) into a series of G0's and G1's for the drilling operation. I remember using this option in Mastercam years ago, but I don't recall if RhinoCam's Post editor has this option.

    Isn't that what you get if you post a drilling operation with the peck drilling options filled in to suit your job?It just needs the right post processor for your machine to be selected and the output will automatically be in Gcode format.
