Adjust the Break command to prompt for the entity and then two points at which to break it.

Shawn Evjen submitted a tip that adjusts how the Break command works. Using this code you will always be prompted to select the entity and then two points, as opposed to the default behavior where the entity is broken at the point where you select it. Load the LISP code and then type in Brk at the Command line. You will be prompted to select an entity, then prompted for two points at which to break the entity.

Editorís note: Shawn used B for this function name. Because B is a common shortcut for AutoCADís Break command as well as other commands, Harry thought it necessary to rename the function to Brk. Readers can choose to restore B if desired.
