AutoLISP is not a command but an "API" - a programming interface where you can develop your own commands and add-on applications for AutoCAD. Most of the AutoCAD addon applications available here on the Download page have been developed in AutoLISP.

I work doing Civil design and I use several dozen autolisp programs to help me do the following:
1. Count Linear footage of proposed sewer lines, waterlines, or contour lines to get the slope of a project.
2. I use a Measure Along a Curve to help create parking lots that are based on curves.
3. a quick way to auto number parking spaces, lots, or landscaping.
4. Converting circles to polylines, or converting splines to plines.
these are just sdome that I use.  They are very handy.
