In running different learning examples for Mathematica 5.0, I
repetitively use Clear["Global`*"] to reset all my variables. I tried
to make "cg" into an InputAutoReplacements alias with the Option
Inspector by defining ...
cg -> Clear[\"Global`*\"]
After clicking OK twice and re-inspecting this entry, I found that
Mathematica had processed it into ...
Clear[ Times[ "Global`, "]]
which is not what I expected. So, I redefined ...
cg -> Clear[\"Global`\*\"]
because the Mathematica Book says ...
\* in effect acts like an escape: it allows you to enter ordinary
Mathematica syntax even within a \( ... \) sequence. Note that the
input you give after a \* can itself in turn contain \( ... \)
Mathematica processes the new cg definition into ...
which is not what I expected, either.
Tests of both definitions for cg yield failures with error messages.
Are such InputAutoReplacements beyond the scope of Mathematica 5.0?
