AutoLISP is a dialect of the LISP programming language built specially for interfacing with AutoCAD. It allows users to create custom commands and automate repetitive tasks within the software. The syntax is similar to other LISP variations, but includes specific functions that can manipulate geometry, work with properties of different objects within a drawing, and manage control structures. It is an important tool for many architects, engineers, designers, and AutoCAD power users who want to extend the capabilities of their software beyond what is possible with built-in commands alone.
