One of the most popular functions provided by a well-equipped mIRC client is
the conversion of common phrases into their full-text version. Keywords (or
net-speak) such as LOL or LMAO is displayed in chat as complete words; LOL
becomes "Laughing Out Loud", LMAO becomes "Laughing My Arse Off".
Gradient also has the ability to convert common "stop words" (aka cuss words)
into more sanitized versions; words such as "sh*t" and "f**k" are common entries
in the Gradient dictionary.

||Turn Gradient processing on so that it replaces macro
words in text with their full-text equivalents.
||Turn Gradient off. Chat text is passed without processing.
||List the macro replacements in the current set.
||List the macro replacements in the Global Set. You may edit
these replacements by editing the [Macro] section of the gradient.ini
|Add the specified macro to the current set and replace
it in chat text with the replace-text specified. Note that the
new entry is added only to the current set and not to the
|Delete the specified macro from the current set. Note
that the entry is deleted only from the current set and not from
the Global Set.
||Holding down the Control (or Ctrl) key when pressing the Enter key
causes the current line of chat text to be sent verbatim; without
processing by either mIRC or Gradient. This is especially handy when
giving mIRC commands in chat for others to use.
Gradient will replace macro words in normal chat text and in mIRC commands
(such as whispers or actions /me commands). This is especially handy when
you have common misspellings automatically corrected by Gradient.
