    Default Re: visual lisp editor should be like visual studio

    I agree in principle, but creating an IDE from scratch is a major investment in time and programming effort, especially when AutoDesk isn't in the business of creating software development tools. Perhaps they could spin this off, or at least provide program "hooks" so external VLISP IDEs can be independantly developed and used, similar to using Visual Studio to develop managed .NET projects.

    Then there is the concern that whatever attempts are made to "fix" it could make it worse.
    If you are going to fly by the seat of your pants, expect friction burns.
    Some say beauty is in the eye of the Beholder... perhaps so, but I've only seen the disintegration beam.
    Everyone else being wrong is not the same thing as being right.
