Best AutoLisp programming book?
« on: August 30, 2007, 12:46:10 PM »
I bought a few, but they are extremely advanced concepts using their own compiled libraries.
Also the disks were missing containing the files, the websites, & base structures they reference are no longer available to even begin to follow through them anymore. I bought them used because I had so much trouble finding current ones available as well.

Looking for something to build my foundations better.

Afralisp has some good tutorials, if you care to go that route.

My first book on AutoLisp was by George O. Head, not just cuz the name cracks me up, but he truly put out some good material. This was a long time ago and I have since misplaced/forgotten the books and titles. Google.

I have some intermediate experience with C# & VB using Visual Studio & SQL but when I tried to find any books bridging them to AutoCAD I got cricket sounds. This was a year ago though.
If you know of any availalbe lately I would love to try that route.

There is a VB.Net book out for Autocad by Jerry Winters that just came out.  It should give you what you need

This is a German tutorial.
It's very good written: It's not only an explanation of functions, but the writer is really teaching and he has humor.

Crank,

sadly, the author of this site passed away to early. The german-speaking AutoCAD and -LISP community still feels a great sadness about this.
But from all I know his site will be kept online as long as possible.

A compilation of his AutoLISP and VisualLISP sites, edited and completed by some fellows was published as a book a few weeks ago here

Yes, I know, it's my post and it's advertising. Sorry about that. But it was just to round off crank's post.

Funny I didn't see it as advertising at all.
