  The big AutoCAD tools sites with LISPs are:

  "AutoCAD Plugin Store" by beyond.com
     http://www.cadplugins.com/
     This is the by AutoDESK "officially recommended" tools site.
  "CADalog" - The AutoCAD Shareware Clearinghouse (Mike Clark)
    http://www.cadalog.com/
  "The CAD Depot", formerly known as "cadsyst" or "Rolling Stock Software",
    (David Whynot) recently bought by TenLinks.com 
    http://www.caddepot.com/

  They are specialized in AutoCAD related software and have a very
  good AutoLISP collection. Other professional AutoLISP shareware
  sites post their URL's to the newsgroup too. 

  Other relevant sites are:
  TenLinks (www.tenlinks.com) and the UpFront (www.upfrontezine.com) ezine
  are the best CAD news services. Autodesk also started their portal site 
  "Point A" at http://www.autodesk.com/pointa

  Some more sites with AutoLISP collections are:

[1.1] Are the comp.cad.autocad articles stored somewhere?

  There is no comp.cad.autocad archive or such a thing, but there
  are some search machines which store news articles. In
  particular:

| * http://groups.google.com/       - The biggest news archive
|     formerly known as http://deja.com/usenet
  * http://www.altavista.com/
      http://www.altavista.com/cgi-bin/query?pg=aq&what=news
  * http://www.excite.com/
      http://www.excite.com/search.gw?collection=news
  * Phoaks - People Helping One Another Know Stuff - Automatic Links Extractor
      http://www.phoaks.com/phoaks2/newsgroups/comp/cad/autocad/index.html

  The Autodesk discussion forums have also a search feature at
| http://discussion.autodesk.com

  Some specific older news postings are also stored at
  http://xarch.tu-graz.ac.at/autocad/news/contents.html

[1.2] Autodesk's SDK

  Up to Release 12 a Software Development Kit was available directly
  at Autodesk. The SDK1-2 was shipped with the international R12 for
  free. It included a lot of ADS and AutoLISP source code and libraries.

  From R13 on Autodesk provides a special developers network, comparable
  to Microsoft's, the ADN. The CD's are comparable to the old SDK but
  are more targeted to ObjectARX developers.
  Contact your nearest Autodesk headquarter for becoming a member.

  Some LISPs are at http://xarch.tu-graz.ac.at/autocad/code/adesk/SDK2

  In the US, ADN membership costs $600.00 per year.  The CDs don't include
  any SDK per se, but most of the stuff in the original SDKs is included
  in one form or another. (Owen)
