Autocad 13 for Mac - lisp routines won't work

Recommended Posts

Cesarman

I'm new to this forum, and I'm glad I found it. I am also new at lisp, although I have programming experience with other languages. My question is how come a lisp routine won't work on my mac?. First thing that I wonder is the c: right after the defun.

 

Can someone point me to some good article on this?

 

Thanks!

I dont have an article to reference yet, but I know that ACAD for MAC can run pure AutoLISP but not Visual LISP like "VL" "VLA" "VLAX"...

  • Most AutoLISP will work unless it includes Windows calls (using .NET) or uses DCL dialogs
  • Most ARX applications will work unless it includes MFC or .NET calls

You should change your profile to read AutoCAD for Mac 2013 so we'll know you aren't playing with a full deck.:lol:

Welcome to the forum. There may not be many if any Mac users here, but there still may be some help with routines. They may have to be "dumbed down" to work, but in many cases that may not be too hard, or there may already be an alternative version that would work. To start out, you will probably want to just post whatever routine won't work and learn from there. Lots of folks here are happy to explain things.

 

The C: right after the defun means you can type the name (minus the "C:") right on the command line as though it is an AutoCAD command, that is, with no parentheses.

You have my sincere condolences.:cry:
Mine, too, especially, if you were "forced" into it.

Yes, good advice. And you might mention it in your posts, just in case folks miss it otherwise.

This may be the best advice!;)

I will follow your recommendation, thanks a lot
