BricsCAD V18.2 introduces BLADE, the BricsCAD LISP Advanced Development Environment. The BLADE command opens the advanced environment for editing and debugging LISP applications.
AutoCAD’s VLIDE (Visual LISP IDE) has not been updated for a long time and has bugs like these that’s been around since at least AutoCAD 2008 and will probably never be fixed.
With this update I will do more development of AutoLISP within BricsCAD even when the code also will be used in AutoCAD.
I’m pretty sure that BLADE will be improved upon in coming years as well. I want a keyboard shortcut for the command “Load Selection in BricsCAD”. I’m sure it will be there very soon.
UPDATE: “My to-do list still has a number of major key features to be implemented. We want to add a hotkey editor, because every developer loves his own keystrokes and learning others is a nightmare!“ read this interview by Steve Johnson @ CAD NAUSEAM with the creator of BLADE, Torsten Moses. The whole interview is also on the Bricsys blog.
