Books about Visual LISP Visual LISP Programming inside
Visual LISP was introduced as AutoLISP in the early releases of AutoCAD
and became a favorite for writing advanced applications and macros.
For over 15 years this programming tool has been available and that has
resulted in a large legacy of applications and utilities. It has
also resulted in a long list of books available on the subject. When
AutoLISP was first made a part of AutoCAD there were few references that
explained this unusual language. Today there are many and they range
in depth from beginning through very advanced. LISP is considered unusual
in that it only appears in specific environments such as AutoCAD and it
utilizes a syntax involving prefix notation. Much like the differences
in popular hand held calculators, it is just a matter of getting used to
it before it becomes a natural way to express something to the computer.
