Smile Visual LISP or VBA - your input counts!

In Hot Tip Harry's newsletter, would you (the readers) rather see more Visual LISP examples and thoughts or would you like more VBA?

Reply to this thread and let me/us know your thoughts!

Thanks,
Hot Tip Harry

If that is the only two choices, then Lisp.

Is there any use for VBA on a 64-bit O/S? It's V E R Y slow....

How about .NET?

Well, as periodical information, there's a definite dearth of VBA info out there.

That being said, I'm still a Lisp & VLIsp user, so that's the product I want, and care about. The fact that "our" software still uses much of the same s/w to operate, and the "clunkiness" of the various other programming language interfaces, encourages this for me.

Put my vote down for VL.

My preference is VBA as I use it in other programs so the technique is the same throughout. I do read all of the lisp stuff though as it gives me ideas for customization but i convert the ideas to vba.

Both...
As Cap'n Mac said, there is a lack of easily available, basic examples of VBA...
Actually, to sum up...
More of each, thank you ...

Visual LISP

Unless you can demonstrate how to use VBA in such a way that it can be called from a command line and can be loaded without any difficulty from within the Enterprise CUI file.

How about this?

(defun c:FOO () (vl-vbarun "//server/share/programs/myprog.dvb!basModule.MySub"))

Whatever the name of your menu file, create a .MNL with the same name and include the defun above. For example, if your menu is "cmwade.cui", then your MNL file will be "cmwade.mnl"
