I think it's neat that she's plugging LISP; thanks for sharing Alan.  ;-)

Now would be a good time to send Lynn emails asking when the VLIDE will be brought into the 21st Century ...

I'm 100% with you on that. If they have Autodesk people still plugging it, it'd be nice to see a little development.

While they're at it... perhaps a little more API Feature exposure to Visual LISP too (i.e., Civil 3D's AEC* Objects). :WishfulThinking:

My thoughts as well. 
A nice little intro.

Who is Lynn Allen? Is she a member here?  *clickty link clickty* whoa? this is recient (that's acad 11 or 12).

comments:
the ``guru'' label isnt appreciated (I laugh a little when someone says that they are a guru).

paren speach is a little wonky (I didnt follow and I still dont know why I need a open and close after my DEFUN).

isnt it underscore command: _zoom?

"command" statement was good (-i.e. passes control to AutoCAD).

the `nil' statement was a little lacking (I dont need to only know how to `hide the nils' but I need to know what they are).


Overall, good job. Keep 'em comming.

Lynn Allen is a representative for Autodesk. She goes all over giving how-to and new add-on seminars, etc. I just though it was cool to see an Autodesk representative showing people that LISP is still useful, which makes me think Autodesk at least thinks about it from time to time....or maybe she just didn't have anything new to talk about for her weekly webcast.

I'm pretty sure he knows who she is.  Who doesn't??  I think he was joking when he typed that.

He did.

His post had the word "Se7en" next to it.

No, i didnt know who she was.

The AutoLisp language will never be extended. She is probably a marketing rep so its her job to "sell" the ease of AutoCAD over the competition. But that doesnt take away the benifit of the vid for the new users though. It was a good find. I dont think there will be many more; i cant see how a video will address some of the more complicated "functions" though.
