Point import routine: Read a File Containing Coordinate Data and Plot Points.

Our last tip of the month came in from previous tipster Jeff Sanders. This tip is something that many have pursued since the dawn of AutoLISP: Read a File Containing Coordinate Data and Plot Points (Tip #2080). This tip is not an ordinary point import routine. It's not written for a specific file type and format; Jeff's utility will work with ASCII text as well as Excel files. You can use data in different formats as well. For LISP programmers this tip is a powerful example of manipulating Excel data as well as a nice template to adapt to your own data requirements. A tip of the hat to Jeff for a quality tip!
