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.

was it "AutoLisp in Plain English"?

Not sure how many reprints were done, but I bought that book back in 92'. I'm pretty sure it was the stone tablet version.

That's the one I used as well. A well written book with many examples and tests in each chapter.

Funny when the masculine and feminine objectivity of other languages become involved in an english translation.

Thanks to all for the links and advice. I always tried to start with a few books, but they bounced around so much and my scope of work has me bounced around so much I never got from cover to cover.
I'll have to try a few of these out for the full cover to cover.

It may be that Lisp is in AutoCAD an old hat that the large love of Microsoft actual those would also not have it probably rather an active participation in Visual basic, which is built into AutoCAD also.

I like things like:

"It may be that Lisp is in AutoCAD an old hat that the large love of Microsoft actual those would also not have it probably rather an active participation in Visual basic."

Now that's some primo babel...   :-)

That one worked for me too Luis.

... but I found the New Rider books were great ( somewhere around Rel 11. or 12)

Mastering Autolisp for versions r9-r13 by New Riders Press were the best books.  Then they just quit updating them

IMO, once you feel comfortable with the Rawls and Hagen book, the rest is learned online.

Let's face it. One reason there are no books which fully explain the topics discussed here is because books are being replaced by online. Sad though that may be for those of us who like the feel of a book.

Just my two cents...
