This routine is an improvement over the MeasureGeom command.

Alan Thompson is back again with another great routine. This one reports the distance between two points along an entity in AutoCAD. You could use the MeasureGeom command to obtain a similar measurement in some cases, but this LISP routine is an improvement because you can pick any two points on a valid object (line, circle, arc, polyline, spline, etc.) and the distance along the object between those two points is reported — no more tracing polyline segments or making a copy of an object and breaking it. Load the routine, type in the command DBP, then pick two points on an entity. The distance will appear in a pop-up window and the points you picked, along with the segments between those points, will be highlighted on the screen with temporary markers.
