copy_agn.lsp applies the same copy parameters (distance and direction) to an object just created, resulting in a continuous series of copies.

Tip 2236: Continued Copy
Another little gem from Patrick Evangelista, Continued Copy, is a variation of the Copy command that will continue to apply the same copy parameters (distance and direction) to an object just created, resulting in a continuous series of copies. After loading the LISP code, type CPC at the Command prompt to get it started. First, you need to select an entity to copy and then show the base point and displacement point. The object selected now will be copied as per the parameters defined. Press Enter to have the newly created object copied once again in the same direction and distance. When you have enough copies, type X to exit the routine. This great tip shows how you can continuously add new features to existing commands with a little LISP creativity!
