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?

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.

sound like a good resource.... in my opinion..... i was more about focus on something that could run within autocad... applications that are in need to be translated into spanish ..let say.... [i am assuming is for that no?] best regards, Luis.

Well, there are practical phrasebooks available - I saw one at the local lumber yard here in Corona, Calif. this AM Eng.<=>Esp. Pocket size. Specific to construction industry. Or were you thinking of something like an electronic translating dictionary which maybe runs inside AutoCAD? If so, http://www.crlf.de/Software/indexe.html#AT FWIW

Briefly, yes, as an add-in -- but -- I doubt that app you cite can match what I have in mind and what can now be accomplished using the .NET Framework. Can you jump back into the thread between Luis and myself Herman? Its not like we're standing around sucking beers in a tavern :-) Its too difficult to keep two or more conversations going. <%= Clinton Gallagher "Herman Mayfarth" wrote in message news:VA.00000102.26afd866@me.net... > Well, there are practical phrasebooks available - I saw one at the > local lumber yard here in Corona, Calif. this AM > > Eng.<=>Esp. > Pocket size. > Specific to construction industry. > > Or were you thinking of something like an electronic translating > dictionary which maybe runs inside AutoCAD? > > If so, > > http://www.crlf.de/Software/indexe.html#AT > > FWIW >

clintonG, sounds like a plan..... how this will work, let say to be use for translation of code prompts that are now in English into Spanish... for the metric units issue...? and by the way that is what i'm doing now... [by hand...] > We're on the same page hermano :-) >

I wouldn't have a clue how to intercept the prompts other than copy to the clipboard. Why just the prompts? What of the rest of the user interface? Are you suggesting some sort of selection process that captures the text in the command line and translates it? What metric issues? <%= Clinton Gallagher "Luis Esquivel" wrote in message news:4124d09e$1_3@newsprd01... > clintonG, > > sounds like a plan..... how this will work, let say to be use for > translation of code prompts that are now in English into Spanish... for the > metric units issue...? and by the way that is what i'm doing now...
