    The AUGI training program had an excellant program on learing lisp and creating lisp routines. The program number was 049. A good starting point.

    You could try Afralisp. This site has some good tutorials.

    If you have any questions, just ask in here. Someone will come along and help you out.

    If you have a technical question, please find the appropriate forum and ask it there.
    You will get a quicker response from your fellow AUGI members than if you sent it to me via a PM or email.

    Hi Gareth,

    I teach Visual LISP at a college level and have tried a few different to present the material.

    I would suggest the book AutoLISP programming practices and techniques by Rawls and Hagen.

    It is written for r14 but is a great place to start learning lisp.

    It is an excellent workbook to learn "AutoLISP".

    Once you have a good foundation in "AutoLISP" ... The visual LISP part is fairly straight forward.

    Ofcourse the best place to learn LISP is on any one of the several LISP forums including, the autodesk newgroups, AUGI forums, theswamp.org, or www.waun.org email lists.



    As mentioned about Kenny Ramage's afra lisp is also an excellent resourse.

    Autodesk University is a good place to learn too.

    Hi Gareth

    Please note that I have merged your thread with this one.

    I have also stickied this thread since it contains a collection of great resources for learning lisp. Hopefully this will make it easier for new people wanting to learn lisp to find.

    Thanks

    I couldn't agree more - I have a borrowed copy on my desk here at work, and another copy (which I was fortunate enough to be given when a previous workplace upgraded to R14) in my office at home.

    I find it much easier than navigating the online help. My only concern though is that it might not include the whole of the available function list, seeing as it is now over 13 years old. I haven't found anything yet that has been dropped, though, so that means that it is a good place to start as everything in it stillworks (afaik).

    Personally I think it would be a good move on the part of AutoDesk if they were to offer a new edition of this invaluable resource. Its best feature is that it is written in plain language so as even newbies like myself can understand it, yet it covers even the most complex topics.

    Chapter 4 (Catalog of AutoLISP Functions) in particular is exceptionally helpful as a 'Quick Reference', and I have even seen LISP programmers with many years of experience refer back to this book on a regular basis.

    I recommend "AutoLISP in plain English"
    Also I find the AutoCAD R12 AutoLISP manual to very useful.
