DOSLib for IntelliCAD

Post by dooleybob41 » Wed Jul 25, 2018 3:45 pm

I've used DOSLib in my AutoLISP programming for many years, so was excited when I found an older post about DOSLib4 for AutoCAD.

I couldn't find a copy of DOSLib4, so asked Dale Fugier at McNeel about it. He sent me a copy of DOSLib4, but warned that it might not load. It didn't.

I asked him if there was a possibility of a version of DOSLib for 64-bit IntelliCAD, and he said no - too much work for a free tool.

A: Very useful old library for 32 bit single core processors. Will be around for years.

Q: ALEXA PLEASE ...predict future of DOSlib

A: It has gone open source as few want to support it with current new technology. RIP DosLib

I had a look at the open source, unfortunately its not a trivial task to port.
It may be easier to create a new module, with a trimmed down set of functions
