    Default lisps for dummies

    Registered forum members do not see this ad.

    hey everybody,

    I´ve been searching the forum and other sites about lisps.
    I´ve always heard about how they can be a powerful tool, but i never really needed them up until now.

    I haven´t found though, a step by step tutorial for beginners
    I´don´t have any background in programming, and the most i´ve done in the area is setting my alarm clock!

    Can anybody help me out,

    Great thanks,
    lisp dummy

    A good reference book would be:

    AutoLISP Programming: Principles and Techniques by Rod Rawls and Mark Hagen (1996). Paperback edition available via Amazon.com for roughly $35 (U.S.).

    The AutoLisp tutorial that's included in the Help Files for Autocad is a fairly good starting point.

    It seems like most people skip over the included help files of which there are a ton.
