Emoticon/Smiley-to-AutoLISP Translator

Do you see Emoticons [Smileys, etc.] embedded in AutoLisp code in this forum?

 

If you are Signed In, and go to

My Settings / Preferences / Display / Emoticon type

and check the button for "None", you should then not see them when you are Signed In, but you will probably still see them when you get on the website but are Signed Out.

 

They are caused by colons being followed immediately by certain triggering characters.  Since this is a valid occurrence in AutoLisp code, they sometimes appear there.  Unfortunately, copying content that contains them and pasting it into a plain-text editor such as Notepad does not restore the original colon-and-character combination, but omits it.

 

So here's a Translator, so that you can tell what characters should go in place of the different kinds of emoticons.  It lists all combinations of a colon with any other character [on my US English PC keyboard].  Many of them do not trigger emoticons, but I am leaving them all in, so that if the collection of triggering characters should change, the translator will be up-to-date at the time anyone looks at it.

 

If AutoDesk should choose to remove emoticon capability from this forum as I would suggest, then this Translator will be obsolete.

 

[Remember, if you are Signed In and have your Emoticon type set to "None," this should not show any emoticons, but will be a rather pointless-looking list.]

As I said in my last reply on the menu from LISP thread, maybe the right place for your AutoDesk request in order to remove these smileys is in the  Updates to Autodesk Discussion Groups thread, where it might have a chance to be seen by Eric Wright.
