Adding in types, the C++ is probably
Code: Select all
int x;
cin >> x;
for(int i=0; i<x; i++) { ... }


Here's roughly equivalent CL.
Code: Select all
(let ((x (read *standard-input*)))
  (assert (integerp x))
  (dotimes (i x) ...))


There a few options for checking that x is an integer (such as an IF instead of the assert), there are times to prefer DO or LOOP over DOTIMES, and *STANDARD-INPUT* is a default and doesn't need to be specified to READ.
Please check out some of the books in the FAQ for this forum.

(setvar "OSMODE" 0)
;;***********************************************

(print "How many copies?")

(let ((x (read *standard-input*)))
(assert (integerp x))

Are we talking Common Lisp or Autolisp (used by AutoCad) or something else?
What program reads the files?

The prog. is for Acad! Is there a difference?

Well, it is another Lisp dialect, so I presume there is.
