Although I'm quite familiar with Mathematica, I always try to keep an open mind and don't use it as golden hammer. I'm particularly good at things that are fun, for instance

@eldo Hehe, haliturutan sounds a bit like Truthahn in German :-) I edited the answer.

comment Faster Alternative to DeleteDuplicates for deleting elements in list
Have you searched the forum? There are some threads about his, for instance here mathematica.stackexchange.com/a/35214/187

comment Why is my compiled code slower?
The example code is missing braces and is syntactically not correct. In its current form the question cannot be answered.

comment Simple Choice-Dialog like the auto-completion popup
@ArielSepulveda With popup at cursor I mean the behavior the autocompletion popup shows: It appears exactly beneath your current cursor position where you type.

comment Simple Choice-Dialog like the auto-completion popup
@ArielSepulveda I do have a hand-crafted list-dialog-clickedy-clack too for my symbol information palette but this lacks of the short-cuts and arrow keys. You always have to click. Additionally, and I haven't mentioned this here, I would like the dialog to popup at cursor (not mouse!) position. This seems impossible to achieve as far as I can tell. As always, if you want to do a real application with the dynamic UI elements it is never a one-line like advertised in the million toy-demonstrations.

comment How to convert a notebook cell to a string retaining all formatting, colorization of identifiers etc?
(here and here) a rather pessimistic view about the possibility to access front end used for highlighting.

comment How to convert a notebook cell to a string retaining all formatting, colorization of identifiers etc?
@VladimirReshetnikov Although you can include all kinds of formatting in a Mathematica string, the things you want to extract are done on-the-fly by the front-end for viewing purposes only. While it makes some sense to provide e.g. access to a hidden front end Mathematica lexer, I would really be surprised, if there is any way to use the front ends internal algorithms used for highlighting. Anyway, maybe the only person that could give you an answer here mentions at several places...

comment Extrude 2D cross-section to 3D shape with shrinkfactor
@Michiel Can you include the points of your 2d shape in your question? With this, we can work with your data and see what you see. Or if your data is too large, then put the list of points to pastebin.com

comment Extrude 2D cross-section to 3D shape with shrinkfactor
@Öskå In its current form not. body really gives the length of the constant middle part and the round corners are always added. You have to change thicknessFunc to make the shape more rectangular, but I'm not sure how ParametricPlot3D will handle such an abrupt jumpg.
