Display the scale of a drawing based on current drawing settings.

Displaying the Drawing Scale in a Text Object (Tip #2071) is from veteran tipster Leonid Nemirovsky. Just load the LSP code, type SCL at the Command line, and locate where you want to display the scale of the drawing. The scale value is displayed as the text string Scale: 1" = 1'-0". This function takes the current drawing settings as input and demonstrates the power of LISP to get the job done.
