If posting something like "drop=_: )" without a blank between the column and the closing bracket the code posted gets converted into a Smiley.
proc transpose data=have out=transp(drop=_:) prefix=Gift; var gift; by id; run;
@Patrick, have you tried the SAS syntax editor (running man icon)? Or, do you mean that you want to be able to post a small snippet of code without it turning into a smiley - which I can understand. I will see if there is a way to prevent this but we recommend the SAS Syntax Highlighter for blocks of code. If you have more details let me know.
Seem a bit of overkill to have to use a separate editor to correct a minor spelling issue or on a small like of code such as
(keep = var:) which will show the smiley and since I don't generally but a space at the end of a variable list in a keep data set option...
My 2 cents. I've turned off smileys in my Preferences page. They don't add anything. In the early days of email people used *grin*, *kidding*, *smile*, and other text instead of cute, yellow, smiling, winking, spinning, rotating, flying, laughing graphical images.
Somehow we managed to convey the sentiment just fine. *smile*
