Well, where are you now?
Does AutoCAD still load without a menu?
Try going into Options>Files (tab).  Expand Menu, Help, and Miscellaneous File Names, then Menu File.  What does it say?


This (from AutoCAD Help File) may be of some assistance in the future...(?)

MNU: Template menu file.

MNC: Compiled menu file. This binary file contains the command strings and menu syntax that defines the functionality and appearance of the menu.

MNR: Menu resource file. This binary file contains the bitmaps used by the menu.

MNS: Source menu file (generated by AutoCAD).

MNT: Menu resource file. This file is generated when the MNR file is unavailable, for example, read-only.

MNL: Menu LISP file. This file contains AutoLISP expressions that are used by the menu file and are loaded into memory when a menu file with the same file name is loaded.

True enough...
On the bright side, you'll probably never let this happen to you again.  Losing lots of custom additions to your menu leaves a bad tastes in ones mouth!

Since you're doing a tutorial, is there something in there about creating a partial menu?  That's what I use...I only keep my custom stuff in there.  The rest of the AutoCAD funtionality comes from the plain ol' Acad.mnu for the most part...

My company has implemented user loginname menufiles (.mns and .mnl) and profiles (.arg) and placed them on the network. This way they load on any machine you log into. Any custom tools get created in them.

Mark,

FYI

I have had problems with a similar algorithms where the lines were parallel but they
were drawn from opposite directions and failed the test. So i had to add code to swap
ends on one of the lines. Also had trouble with lines being exactly parallel,
in that the angles did not match exactly. I had to use the fuss factor in the EQUALS
function.  I would hope these were unusual cases but they existed in several
drawings I inherited.
