Depth of cut - radial or diameter?

First of all, let me say: this app is amazing! I started as a machinist in a manual machine shop two years ago and now run a CNC lathe - this app has always been a huge help. As I am doing lots of lathe work these days I have a question about the turn calculator function. In the cut time section, when entering the "depth of cut" field, is that depth on the radius or on the diameter? So if I enter .1 - is that .1 "per side" or .1 off the diameter? Just wanted to clarify :)
