Special Input Forms

Does anyone know how to make shorthand input forms in Mathematica? For instance one can use: func /@ list rather than: Map[func,list] I've messed around with the "InputForm" command with no success. I would also prefer to not use the extra tilde's required by the "Infix" command. My problem is further complicated because I would like to use, if possible, a combination of symbols that are individually defined (Mathematica reads the combination of the 3 as non-sensical). Specifically, I would like an expression like the following: 2 +/- 3 to evaluate to Uncertainty[2,3] Thanks for the help Michael Ibrahim wasfy at gac.edu
