Any good customization books?

Howdy!
Can someone recommend a good customization book? My office runs A2Ki and
I'd like to teach myself to be the customization guy. I think it'd be most
useful to learn about writing lisps, creating pulldowns, and that sort of
stuff.

Thanks,
Bryan

Bryan,

At the moment your best bet is "Customizing AutoCAD 2000" by Sham Tickoo
from Autodesk Press. ISBN = 0-7668-1240-5 Try: www.autodeskpress.com
or the usual e-book stores.

(The "classic" and still best book for customization is Maximizing AutoCAD
R13 by Gesner, Middlebrrook & Tanzillo from Autodesk Press but unfortunately
it's out of print but well worth trying to find a copy!! And, no!, you can't
borrow mine!)

-- just had to mention that i have (or had -- depends how you look at it)
the R13 Maximizing AutoCAD book, and i used it alot -- the spine is broke
and i think its laying around here in 5 or 6 sections. That was an
excellent book.

I've never read Sham's work but I've received nothing but
bad feedback on it.

Do I ever agree! That book alone catapulted me into the oxygen-deprived
environment I find myself in...

Ok MP, I'm seeing your opportunity for writing that book getting closer and
closer. Maybe you and TT could team up :-0 and write the next installment
of Maximizing AutoCAD, subtitled "Maximizing opportunities to accuse other
programmers as adapt as yourself of code perjury".

p.s. - I did not come up with myself, I borrowed it from RRB.

I read his customizing R14 book and thought it was ok. It was rather basic
but had some good ideas. I read through it once but never refered back to it
so I would recommend (the R14) as an intro book but not a good reference
book. Of course I have not read the 2k book so can't comment on it.

Bobby,

Who is the "MP" you refer to? And which book are you referring to when you
say "that book"?????

Is your message below intended as a response to my message -- also below? If
so, you've managed to completely confuse me. Haven't the slightest idea what
you're talking about. Sorry.

Dave Pitzer
