    Default Using VLIDE For Troubleshooting

    First off: I have VERY basic knowledge of LISP; I use it for simple functions like fixing layers, realigning blocks, and other pretty rudimentary tasks. However, I recently wanted to turn a LISP that I have been using for like 5 years into a .FAS file, and found the VLIDE doesn't like my LISP, and won't create the file. The reason I am creating this .FAS is that I am being pressured to hand over this script, but it contains a lot of functions that nobody else knows how to use, and I fear it can be relatively easily reverse-engineered to extract these functions.

    The error I am getting is :
    Code:
    ; error: bad argument value: non-negative: -1
    Now, to me, that doesn't make a ton of sense, but I was figuring it would work something like the VBA editor where it might highlight the issue, or where I can step into the program to see the problem? TIA.

    Nice to know about name length problems and characters in file name problems. About to build a lot of files as commercial product my file names are normally short, in some case to short.

    OMG that was it; that's brutal that it doesn't understand longer filenames … they've been supported by everything since, what, 1995?


    Thank you so much; I really appreciate it.
