I have used syntax transformers. If anyone interested I have put
an extra page about it:

I am not sure what you mean by this. Can you elaborate?

No. I do not know how to do that. I will check the help desk.

engine at all?

No. No parts of AutoCAD was used.

Unfortunately not. I create a CVS file. The reason is that
there is no
MysterX in AutoCAD, and exactly the same program must run in
AutoCAD and in the simulation environment.

No. At the moment it is easier to find an AutoLISP
programmer than a 
Scheme programmer.
