comment Hiding certain user-defined functions in front-end autocompletion
@NickStranniy 3 users (myself included) have voted to undelete your answer, because even though the OP doesn't seem to appreciate it, the answer is valid and a good one and will be helpful to others. This is, in effect, what happens when you use a package and put the definitions in a private context — something I already suggested and was also dismissed by the OP

@Rojo Possibly because the OP's tone seemed like they were mocking the answer...

@Karami Indeed, the link that Ajasja provided is a very good one that lists the pros and cons of using undocumented functions. In this particular case, I don't think these functions will be removed, as they're used a lot internally for generating mesh polygons in the plotting routines. You can also just do this once and save the coast map (the line data) and simply reuse it when you need it instead of building it each time.

comment Hiding certain user-defined functions in front-end autocompletion
Does it show up in the suggestion bar or in the autocompletion? I think you mean the latter... If you write a package and put the auxiliary functions in a private context, then the autocompletion only shows the functions that you've exposed publicly (although, they can autocomplete the others if they add the private context too)

Nice! This works very well. Didn't you use this Refresh[..., None] trick elsewhere recently?

comment How can I merge two lists in a special way?
@Leonid It's a little trick I learned... people have an irrational dislike of Append ("eeek! don't use AppendTo to grow a list", etc.), but not Join, although they both do the same thing (and are equally "problematic"). So the less one uses it in an answer, the better the chances of an upvote =) "Irrational" was probably the wrong word, because it is completely justified, but what I really mean is that the dislike is attached to the word rather than to what it does (or how). Of course, a +1 comment from you increases the chances of trickle down upvotes much more, so it's a net win :D
