    Yes, that does make sense.

    Yeah, from what I've read (meaning I really don't know anything about it myself!), after half a century plus, other languages (or their descendants) are starting to catch up to LISP. I vaguely recall decades ago when a well-meaning friend enthusiastically but futilely tried to explain its recursive powers. Alas, I'm a bit slow. All I could think was, Once is more than enough for me. I mean, who wants to be repeatedly cursed?Him: But then I met AutoCAD.

    LISP is great generally, and a good place to start if (like me) you've never written code before, methinks.

    Mode mode = this.Mode;
    this.Mode = Modes.Rant;
    My issues with LISP are not issues with the language, but with the VLIDE, lack of Autodesk enhancement to LispFunction Methods (especially for verticals like Civil 3D), etc..

    this.Mode = mode;
