Larger smilies

Gnus comes with some smilies. I'd like them a little larger and more "rounded". So I made some.

A few years later... Google has some very basic (yet animated) smilies in their new Chat-application. When I re-suggested including the larger smilies in Gnus, someone commented that yellow smilies are AOLish and that he'd prefer Googlish smilies. I tried to make some like that too. The result is so-so.

Usage

Unpack somewhere, and tell (X)Emacs to use the new smilies first, perhaps like this:

 (load-library "smiley")
 (setq smiley-data-directory (expand-file-name "~/whereyouputthem/larger-smilies-0.02/"))

And enjoy.

To use all of the smilies, you may have to customize the variable smiley-regexp-alist. Maybe something like this:

 (setq smiley-regexp-alist
       '(("\\(\\^\\|[^>]\\)\\(:-?)\\)\\W" 2 "smile")
         ("\\(;-?)\\)\\W" 1 "blink")
         ("\\(:-]\\)\\W" 1 "forced")
         ("\\(8-)\\)\\W" 1 "braindamaged")
         ("\\(:-|\\)\\W" 1 "indifferent")
         ("\\(:-[/\\]\\)\\W" 1 "wry")
         ("\\(:-(\\)\\W" 1 "sad")
         ("\\(:-{\\)\\W" 1 "frown")
         ("\\(>:-)\\)\\W" 1 "evil")
         ("\\(;-(\\)\\W" 1 "cry")
         ("\\(X-)\\)\\W" 1 "dead")
         ("\\(:-D\\)\\W" 1 "grin")))
