Similarly ...

do you have acetutil.CHM  (circa 2000)

But I believe a lot of the earlier ones (R14 I believe were open code, so if it was broke it could be fixed) not sure about the later ones, I just keep moving the old one up to the new version of acad (the one I use, which now are very few now.  I found it to be more fun to write my own)

Just wondering,  I know if we disable them at work, we would have a lot of angry bee's.  I find that people rely heavily on them for day to day chores the layer stuff and text stuff mostly.

I'm not against users taking advantage of the utilities per se, though I do openly tell folks I won't install or support them.

However I flat out will not use any of the ACET code libraries, and that's what I was making reference to in my first and second posts. There are various authors, some qualified, some not so much; some code is so so, some of it complete crap, some of it resides in arx files without source code ad infinitum, and worse, the package as a whole has historically enjoyed a sporadic existence with regards to licensing and availability. To be aware of these factors and then deliberately invite them into a software project would, imo, be irresponsible -- ergo my first comment.

No thanks, writing and supporting software is challenging enough when (you enjoy the illusion) everything is under your control.

I figured that is what you were referring to.  You're right about the there sporadic existence and complete lack of documentation.  I tried to incorporate the message box into some old code and it turned out to be an all day fiasco that ended in me just deleting the entire code section.  Oh well, live and learn.

Dear All,

I have got ACETUTIL.CHM help file which is version 1.37 and says "Last Updated on June 24, 2000"

I have come across many LISP routines in the past using many "acet-" functions which are not listed in this help file, maybe because it is very old (14 years old !!!!).

So i want to ask from where can we get latest ACETUTIL.CHM help file containing help for all latest ACET functions ?

Thanks.

Not all of them but has a lot...
http://www.afralisp.net/archive/lisp/acet-utils.htm

and then here's an attachment that has them all listen in an excel file
unfortunately there is not a description, though it would likely be able to be added in quite well to this file

Dear Bhull,

Unfortunately without description it is difficult to use many functions. I request the veterans to help.

There is this Excel file in French by a guy name Gerard Lemoine.

You at least get the number of arguments to the functions for which there is no help.

ACET-FUNCTION.XLS

Thanks. But I am surprised by one thing. Whenever any organization makes a software it also releases a help file for the same. For ACET functions, why Autodesk has not made any help file ? Or I should say that why Autodesk has not updated the help file since year 2000 ?

This question should be addressed to AutoDESK.

Perhaps if enough people ask the question directly they MAY think about addressing the issue.
I believe you will need to make a more compelling argument than " Providing up to date and complete documentation is a professional thing to do. "
My gut level feel is that they will only be swayed by a significant financial incentive.

added:
As a related issue, does anyone know how long it's been since the VLIDE has been updated ? Perhaps the answer to that question will indicate how much importants AutoDesk really assigns to it's customizing users.

May have to use carbon dating to determine that.
