by Autodesk, Inc. ; Each time you open a new or existing drawing, AutoCAD searches ; the support path and reads the first acad.pgp file that it finds. ; ; ; ; ; ; ; ; ; ; -- External Commands -While AutoCAD is running, you can invoke other programs or utilities such Windows system commands, utilities, and applications. You define external commands by specifying a command name to be used from the AutoCAD command prompt and an executable command string that is passed to the operating system.

-- Command Aliases -The Command Aliases section of this file provides default settings for AutoCAD command shortcuts. Note: It is not recommended that you directly modify this section of the PGP file., as any changes you make to this section of the ; file will not migrate successfully if you upgrade your AutoCAD to a ; newer version. Instead, make changes to the new ; User Defined Command Aliases ; section towards the end of this file. ; ; ; ; ; ; ; ; ; ; -- User Defined Command Aliases -You can abbreviate frequently used AutoCAD commands by defining aliases for them in the User Defined Command Aliases section of acad.pgp. You can create a command alias for any AutoCAD command, device driver command, or external command. Recommendation: back up this file before editing it. To ensure that any changes you make to PGP settings can successfully be migrated when you upgrade to the next version of AutoCAD, it is suggested that you make any changes to the default settings in the User Defined Command Aliases section at the end of this file.

; External command format: ; <Command name>,[<Shell request>],<Bit flag>,[*]<Prompt>, ; ; ; ; ; ; ; ; ; ; ; ; ; ; ; ; ; ; The Bit Bit Bit Bit bits of the bit flag have the following meanings: 1: if set, don't wait for the application to finish 2: if set, run the application minimized 4: if set, run the application "hidden" 8: if set, put the argument string in quotes

Fill the "bit flag" field with the sum of the desired bits. Bits 2 and 4 are mutually exclusive; if both are specified, only the 2 bit is used. The most useful values are likely to be 0 (start the application and wait for it to finish), 1 (start the application and don't wait), 3 (minimize and don't wait), and 5 (hide and don't wait). Values of 2 and 4 should normally be avoided, as they make AutoCAD unavailable until the application has completed. Bit 8 allows commands like DEL to work properly with filenames that have spaces such as "long filename.dwg". Note that this will interfere with passing space delimited lists of file names to these same commands. If you prefer multiplefile support to using long file names, turn off
