http://www.dsxcad.com/ Check out Dave Stein's Visual Lisp Bible. It's a shame it couldn't have been marketed, but he's giving it away as a PDF for free.

In fact I would have reservations recommending it to anyone as it is right now, unless they where very experienced in LISP & perhaps ActiveX Mostly because a) there are limited worked examples, most examples are single line code snippets that need to be 'played' with to test out. (a difficult thing for a begineer) However the biggest failing is the errors / bugs in the few coded sample apps that are included. Beginners shouldn't need to debug code samples (unless that is the point of an exercise of course). IMHO, a code example should work, no if,'s buts or maybe's. OTOH if this was a first draft I'd say it is a great piece of work, and I'd look forward to the final revision. Just my $0.02, YMMV :-)

Luis -- do you think there is a demand for an English-Spanish dictionary of construction? I have an old dictionary that I have thought of converting into a new product that could be sold and used as reference manual. -- <%= Clinton Gallagher, "Twice the Results -- Half the Cost" Architectural & e-Business Consulting -- Software Development NET csgallagher@REMOVETHISTEXTmetromilwaukee.com URL http://www.metromilwaukee.com/clintongallagher/ "Luis Esquivel" wrote in message news:41235c88$1_3@newsprd01... > if you read some spanish and since writting code is in an universal > language.... get this book: > > http://personales.unican.es/togoresr/ > > It covers from basic - intermediate - advanced > > hth. > > "Pad" wrote in message > news:412250c6_2@newsprd01... > > can anyone recommend a good book to help me get my head around this acad > > lisp marlarky and maybe vba as well? > > > > thanks > > > > pad > > > > > >

Nobody needs to worry about that much longer as Stein who does not say so out right is clearly tired of being a whipping boy for the parasites from the CAD industry and has stated on the home page that he is retiring the website -- including his software and all content -- as of this month, August 2004 when the domain name registration expires. -- <%= Clinton Gallagher, "Twice the Results -- Half the Cost" Architectural & e-Business Consulting -- Software Development NET csgallagher@REMOVETHISTEXTmetromilwaukee.com URL http://www.metromilwaukee.com/clintongallagher/ "Richard" wrote in message news:4122b5b9_3@newsprd01... > > "Don Butler" wrote in message > news:412289a0$1_1@newsprd01... > > http://www.dsxcad.com/ > > > > Check out Dave Stein's Visual Lisp Bible.

Three years university study which has mostly been forgotten.
