Unable to run a LISP routine from the command line.

My problem is with calling a custom command from the command line. The command is successfully called from a menu item contained in a partial CUI. The command, as shown below, is RELIMIT. Since the command is defined as RELIMIT in the Comand Name field I expected this would be the value submitted from the command line. Again, the operation works when selected from the menu in the partial CUI, but when entered from the command line I get the following message: Unknown command "RELIMIT". Is there somewhere else I need to define this command (acad2009.lsp, perhaps)?

You are getting this error because you are creating a Menu Item and not necessarily a command line shortcut. The field "Command Name" is for "Displays the name of the Macro"

the easiest and quickest solution to your problem is to edit your LISP function to accept the command RELIMIT instead of RLIMIT

to do that open the LISP file in notepad and change the line that should look like:
(defun c:rlimit (     TO:
(defun c:relimit (

then you need to change your macro command to:
^C^C(if (= relimit nil) (load "DLCRLMIT")) (relimit)
