Do you mean by "debugging in IntelliCAD" that there is no Integrated Development Environment (IDE)?

Lisp is just a text file so you can edit it in notepad.

There are IDE's freely available on the web that will do things such as count the left and right parentheses to make sure these balance etc.

I should have mentioned that debugging lisp programs is made much easier by using a programmer's editor. I use UltraEdit, but there are many others. At a minimum, look for an editor that is capable of parenthesis matching (also called brace or bracket matching) to make sure you have the same number of open and close parentheses. UltraEdit also has syntax highlighting to help separate lisp function names and variables. I believe there is a lisp-specific editor called LispLink, but I don't know much about it. Good luck.

Thank you so much to all of you, All of your suggestion is great. But as of now I am using the suggestion of CAD_B, I will try later using lisplink. Again thank you so much. It will give a big big help for me

Hi Gary,

You can use the Visual Studio Code with AutoLISP Extension.
Here are some of the major features of the text editor:
- color coding
- formatting of text
- parenthesis matching
- highlight syntax

For detail please refer:
