Q - question

Which AutoCAD commands do exist also in the commandline (non-dialog) dashed version?

A - answer Commands which start with a dash are "non-dialog" versions of AutoCAD commands. They usually allow the same or slightly extended functionality as standard commands driven by dialog boxes, but they can be used also in scripts and macros (including LISP programs).

The current overview of all 128 (in Release 2019) such dash-variants of AutoCAD commands can be found in the command database/vocabulary - see: '-' commands here in the section Converters/Vocabularies.

Some other commands can be switched to the commandline mode by switching off the variables CMDDIA, or FILEDIA.
