I blundered here.  That should have been OutputForm rather than InputForm.

The Autoload directory is intended to be used for configuring the kernel
to automatically load certain packages when functions are called.

A more appropriate location would be your private Kernel init.m file.
If you don't have one, you can do the following.

1) Evaluate the following expression in a notebook:

ToFileName[{$PreferencesDirectory, "Kernel"}]

Create a folder with this path.

2) Open your favorite text editor and paste the definitions that you want
to be evaluated at start up.  Save the file in plain text format as
