I want to learn how to write my own LISP routines.
Where's a good place to start?

I think one of the best things you can do is just what you're doing now.
Watch this newsgroup, play around with some of the code that is posted, and
ask questions when it gets confusing. This newsgroup is a great resource.

I would have to agree with the last post. Watch this newsgroup and read.
Also, look at some existing AutoLISP files that AutoCAD has installed and
try to follow them.

Michael,

I too was in your position last year. I book books and took a Lisp class with
a college here in my city. I have a couple really good books at work if you
want to email me there I will give you the titles.

There is a great LISP learning resource of http://deja.com
Go there, do a search on comp.cad.autocad or
autodesk.autocad.customization newsgroups for any
topic you're interested in. It has postings archived
stretching back for as long ago as 1995 (I think).

Invaluable!

Deja.com?? But isn't that a Borland web site?

I don't think so.

It was dejanews.com previously, now it's called deja.com.
It is the biggest and fullest newsgroups archive. You can
find there any comp.cad.autocad posting from as far back
as 1995. It has the greatest most versatile blazingly fast
search engine. Makes this other ng search page ;-) look like
a bad joke. Even this ng (autodesk.autocad.customization)
is searchable from there, but it is no longer archived for about
half a year now, so only older postings will be found.

You can define any query there and find all the articles
posted on some issue you're interesting in or trying
to learn. Anyone can do it and instead of asking the
same question on the ng, just find the answer instantly
(if it was previously answered). Makes FAQs less significant.

Of course postings from here aren't archived anymore,
since the link was cut off some half year ago.
It's a mystery it existed previously in the first place. :-|

Just another good reason to stop posting here anything
substantial -- it'll just be wasted here. No newcomer will be
able to find it later on, and after half a year everything gets
deleted from this server.

Not so on DEJA.COM.
