G-Code interpreter/loader/streaming for Arduino UNO without Stepper Drivers? Answered

I have a MAXNC CL10 mill, which stopped working a few weeks ago, PICs not working...
Anyway, Looking for a sketch to interpret G-code and drive the unipolar motors.
I searched around and founded Grbl and a few others, which uses driver circuits, but I don't know enough about programming to change them to what I can use.
Any hints, pointers, road maps would be helpful.

I am not aware of any specific software you may need to write your own!

Wouldn't it be easier to fix what you already have? It worked once and can work again.

Search for CNC software should give you some idea of what is available.

The problem two of the four PIC microcontrollers are damaged(probally from when the fan failed) replacing the PICs is not the issue REPROGRAMMING them.....
All me searching leads me to Grbl, rSteppercontroller, Reprap and rStep, all of which output Direction&Step(2 pin) signles. I need Wave output(4 pin)
Plus using an Arduino lets me use USB vise parellel.
