Who is Lynn Allen? Is she a member here?  *clickty link clickty* whoa? this is recient (that's acad 11 or 12).
Lynn Allen is a representative for Autodesk.
I'm pretty sure he knows who she is.  Who doesn't??  I think he was joking when he typed that.
Ya never know. He should have used the sarcasm brackets.
He did.

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

I'll have to watch it later, if I can still mentally function (trying to configure both AutoPLANT and a new version of ProSteel - those who know will understand...).

LISP has got a few holes and is nowhere near as powerful or elegant as managed .NET or ObjectARX, but by the same token its ease of use makes it much better for those of us on the front lines.  Upshot is, AutoDesk REALLY needs an internal LISP champion to handle this stuff.  Probably not a professional programmer, either, as they will more than likely miss the benefits for the faults.  While such a person may consider working with the bigger, badder tools "easy" they are fully dedicated to learning all the ins, outs, and gotchas needed to make something work.  Down here at the pointy end of the stick, that level of specialization means NOT having all the peripheral knowledge needed for day-to-day operations: talking materials with the engineers, structural shapes and sizes with the civil folks, cable trays with the electrical designers, configuring all the applications needed for each, etc.

While I'm sure it may be spelled with a D; I'm almost certain that doesn't get rid of the NILS

Add (princ) as the last line of your code. I guess everyone thought you were joking.

I was; right along with the 'Spelled with a D' crowd.  However the question about nils remained sincere.
I mean how many of you pranksters ever actually see me post any LISP code, ever?  Show of hands...

Thanks for the answer!
Why would that have been so tough for her to include?
I't would seem to take the same amount of words to explain than to not.
