What is M-Resolution?

What is M-Resolution and what affect does this setting have on M Values?  Everything I read says "M-Resolution should be the M-Tolerance divided by 10".  Is the M-Resolution the number of M-Values between the minimum M value and the next (i.e. Implies using BASE10)?  Maybe it means that if you have a long mile then it can insert an additional 10 M values between each existing M?


I understand M-Tolerance to be:  If x and y coordinates are coincident and their m-values are within the M-Tolerance range then their M-values should be set equal to one another.


Typical M Resolution and Tolerance Settings:

MResolution =  0.0001

MTolerance = 0.001


An explanation of M-Resolution would be greatly appreciated.
