"midpoints < 6 units apart"<<<< This is brilliant.  Wouldn't have thought of that for years, and if I had, would not been able to write it for more years.  I am impressed sir.

LISP (Lost in Stupid Parentheses)
« Reply #46 on: January 30, 2009, 10:09:35 AM »
We give newbies extra latitude. :)

Usually we teach LISP so you can create and fix your own routine but this one is too complex for
a first time lisper for sure.

AS for learning LISP it is usualy a steap learning curve if you have never programed before but only
moderate if you have background. I would say 3 month to a year before you are walking with LISP.:)
It all depends on your staring level & the amount of time you apply to study & practice.


To get off the ground in a hurry you should read from these sites:

That's all I have time for this morning.

My advice, start small & let you routine grow with your abilities.

There is plenty of help here at TheSwamp just for the asking? :)

Thanks you Sir.

Not infallible but given that we are dealing with specific layers I opted not to test for parallel lines
which would be a safety feature.  8-)

The Jeff Sanders stuff is VERY easily understood.  Even for a first timer...  Progressing now.
