Burst is a lisp program, and I do not believe you can re-enter lisp from lisp.

Are you sure there is no way to run a LISP routine within a LISP....that sounds sort of stupid if you cant....

But I am having the same problem...

It works in a SCript file so why cant you use a LISP file....

If it is a lisp based command you should be able to utilize it thusly ...

(c:burst)

But really, said command doesn't do anything that cannot be replicated in your own code if you just take the time to itemize what it does.

You can call a lisp from a lisp as long as the lisp routine your wanting to use is setup as a command. Kind of like
Code: [Select]
(defun c:t1 ()
  (alert "\nHello " )
  (c:burst)
  (alert "\nGoodbye ")
  )


But you can't supply a variable from one routine to another one "item1"
