this mean for you???
First, you don't pay for it anymore. Yeah! Second we have
stopped developing for it. Boo! But, while there will be no
more features added by us, that won't stop it from being used or
developed by you or others. APS is now covered under the GNU General Public
License so that it will be able to be used from here on out by
everyone. The raw LISP code will be available here for everyone to
download and use. You may customize it, pull it apart, make it
Can I still
use it as is?
Of course. The installation is
almost exactly the same. The software will work
uncompiled just as it did in the prior compiled version. The only
difference will be that you will be able to see it and modify it if
If I want to modify the
software do I need to know programming?
Yes. You would need to be fairly fluent in AutoLISP and DCL.
This entire system is written in AutoLISP and DCL. None of the newer
C# or other languages. While modern programmers are cringing, those
with experience using AutoLISP will know what to do. It is a simple
lanquage that most AutoCAD power users have dabbled in. While we've
taken it to an extreme in this system it is still just AutoLISP
(although often used in ways it may never have been intended.)
Software is compatible with AutoCAD 2000
