Title: Problems and Solutions Links (don't reinvent the wheel ...)
Post by: Kerry on August 28, 2008, 06:06:16 AM
I thought this may be fun and educational.

It's a relatively common belief that "it's all been done before" with regards to programming.
While I disagree with the blanket statement, there is some truth to the concept.


What code do you want ?
What problem do you want to solve ?   :|

The answers should be links only to a solution ( or partial solution) ... NO CODE PLEASE


PS: be a little reasonable with the request .. some esoteric problems may not qualify :D


edit: make topic sticky

Awesome idea Kerry!

If I may, if you post a solution, give the post with a solution link a good post title so a search can bring it up a bit easier ;)

eg. if it's something that draws an angle bevel diagram or say a beam camber diagram or a ..., 'subject' title your reply 'Beam Camber diagram lisp' for instance.
cheers.

Kerry,

Good topic, though I'm not sure the subject describes it well.

Give my experience with various CAD programs the idea, "it has all been done before," is unique to those who have only used AutoCAD.

Example, the MinDist tool recently posted. It is an often used tool in Microstation. But it gets little notice within the AutoCAD community simply because users are too set in their ways IMO. They simply cannot see the value of it at first glance, so they ignore it.

So the real question may be how to encouarge folks to think outside the box.

Regards

Great idea Kerry!

"Problems with Solutions Links" would be my first shot at another title but it's subjective. 8-)

Thank you CAB.  Just the other day I said to myself that I ought to go diving in The Swamp to see if I can find something like this.  Your code was an exact match.  Thanks again.

I would like to know if anyone has a routine to Automatically close AutoCAD after a set period of inactivity, or even something that could be used as a starting point, I just have no idea how to determine the inactivity part.

Updating my index this AM so I thought I would post it.
Kerry asked me if I had such a reference & I didn't at the time. So I've started keeping  one.

Sorry for the repeats from other post.

Post ASMI
Quote from: ASMI;296771
It is possible that some of you have noticed that the site AsmiTools no longer works due to unpaid hosting services. This is my conscious decision and not due to lack of funds. My present work has nothing to do with AutoCAD, and I find it difficult to maintain this site, as well as participate in this wonderful forum. I say goodbye to your friends. In this archive with all the AsmiTools, lisps each of you can use them as he wants. Perhaps they can be placed in AutoLISP Archive at this site. If someone wants to use my site, I will give it, write me at asmirnov#inbox.lv.

Now I end my membership at the forum and erase my account.

Goodbye friends, thanks for everything.

They do take a while to conceive & create, and at the same time, I don't want to make each tutorial very long as the reader will probably get bored, so its about trying to get a good balance. Also, there are no doubt quite a few typos along the way...

> ...in my opinion the localisation is a cleaner solution.

explain please. Your comment about being "messier" does not cut it for newbies and i will explain (i hope good enough) in my comment.

Comment: You are teaching. In teaching you strive to eliminate confusion and contradiction at every avenue therefore i recommend NOT using fancy tricks (If i can use two examples: dont use (or <var> (setq <var>)) use (setq <var> (cond...) and your localization of the *error* symbol). I understand that you dont necessarily agree with me but again, teaching is different then practice. A newbie is just going to see the same THING in several places and never really take the time to see why THIS ONE is HERE and THAT ONE is THERE.

Why do you say that? I thought i was very polite and very descriptive. He said feedback is welcome.

Definitely - I thank you for your comments and feedback - I do welcome comments to help improve the tutorials; after all, it's my first time at writing a tutorial so there are bound to be things I can improve on.

Regarding your feedback surrounding the use of 'or' in my Prompting with Default tutorial - I would be half inclined to agree, it would be offering fancy alternatives to a user who is only just trying to understand the overall concept. But I do want to offer examples that will try to get a user to think about WHY something can be coded in such a way, if the user isn't prepared to dissect the examples, then they shouldn't really be reading the tutorial in the first place.

Where the *error* localisation is concerned, I would think this is a far simpler concept to grasp than to store the previous handler in a local variable and then reset it. I was considering not including the second method at all, but again, I felt the tutorial should require the user to actually think about what the code is trying to achieve and various ways to go about it.

I agree with the use of OR and with localising *error*. Both are rational methodology.

... but we have been having this discussion for years now.


Good introductory tute Lee.

Regards to all.

`rational methodology' is subjective at best (Remember Cornbread's "Making Brackets" article?). ...but i honestly don't care one way or the other; I was just trying to offer constructive help for helping people.

Looks like it has been removed for most sites.
Perhaps this one will work for you.

Does anyone have a good book to recommend for all the vla stuff?  (e-book would be nice) I know my way around entget/entmod, but I'm just stumbling with basics on vla, learning as I go when I see good code from others.

Luis,  I noticed that Reinaldo has mentioned theSwamp and Owen at OpenDCL in his Acknowledgements.
He's been writing about Lisp for quite a while and does a good job of the subject I think.

I don't have the book ... I have the 4 Kindle e-books which I believe make up the book.

Not sure if this has been posted in here or not, but when looking for information for xdata, I found this link

http://www.autodesk.com/techpubs/autocad/acadr14/dxf/dxf_group_codes.htm

Which when I look at the viewport entity, it listed the meanings of the xdata group codes.  I have never seen them listed before.  Even though it is for an old version, the codes (mostly) should still be the same.

Like kerry the e-books were only $8 each so bought all 4 for less than 1 paper version.
