Testing the Code

If you've made it this far, you have earned a shortcut.

To test the code

  1. Close all the active windows within VLISP, including any open project windows.
  2. Copy the entire contents of the Tutorial\VisualLISP\Lesson5 directory to your MyPath tutorial directory.
  3. Open the project file gpath5.prj using Select Project Open Project from the VLISP menu bar.
  4. Load the project source files.
  5. Activate (switch to) the AutoCAD. window and issue the gpath command to run the program.
  6. Run gpath to draw the garden path three times, each time using a different entity creation method. Do you notice a difference in the speed with which the path is drawn with each method?
