Thanks Dan & Ron.. I was thinking more like..
Please enter the distance (mm) you need to convert to feet & inches:
Command line Input : 300 (mm)
Output : 1'-0" Alert as dialog box or command line, (Precision 1/4")-Rounded positively.
I wrote something similar to Ron, using initget instead of getdist but i am having trouble controlling the precision & positive rounding.
What do you think is the next step as you can clearly see that i am a toddler when it comes to lisp..
