dimscale replacement

I have a lsp routine
that breaks a line in both directions the distance is per
the dimscale

now the dim scale is basicly off with annotative scaling on

is there another comand that can be used in its place

i tried cannoscalevalue but the #'s it gives back gets bigger the smaller the scale is
(the oposite of how dimscale worked)

lsp below





(defun C:BL (/ omode a b c pt1)
(defun *error* ()
(setvar "orthomode" omode)
(setvar "osmode" osmod)
(princ "\nError detected...aborting")
(terpri)
)
(setq SCL (getvar "dimscale"))
(setq omode (getvar "orthomode"))
(setq osmod (getvar "osmode"))
(setvar "orthomode" 1)
(setvar "osmode" 32)
(setq a (getpoint "\nSelect INTERSECTION :"))
(setvar "osmode" 512)
(INITGET "X")
(setq pt1 (getpoint a (strcat "\nSCL=" (RTOS SCL 2 2) "-Please pick lower line Yizil: Nea ")))
(if (= PT1 "X")
(progn
(*error*)
(exit)
)
)
(setvar "osmode" 0)
(setq b (angle a pt1))
(setq c (* SCL 0.040))
(COMMAND "BREAK" PT1 "F" (POLAR A B (- C)) (POLAR A B C))
(setvar "orthomode" omode)
(setvar "osmode" osmod)
)

any ideas
any help would be great

Divide the cannoscalevalue into 1
1 / 0.0208333333 = 48

If something I wrote can be interpreted two ways, and one of the ways makes you sad or angry, I meant the other one.

(setq SCL (/ 1.0 (getvar "cannoscalevalue")))

I make no claims to being an accomplished lisp writer, but the above should work.
