Subject: [babel] evaluating shell commands for side effect
Newsgroups: gmane.emacs.orgmode
Date: Thursday 19th August 2010 16:51:18 UTC (over 6 years ago)
I'm writing "how to" documents that include sequences of shell commands,
such as: 

#+begin_src sh :session *shell*
 cd /home/sullivan/myproj/src
 ./configure --prefix /home/sullivan/myproj/install
 make
 make test
#+end_src

and simply want C-c C-c to send the lines, one at a time, to the inferior
shell process. That is, I want readers to read along, and then execute the
code as needed.

Currently, it never returns (until C-g).  It might be related to the issues
discussed last November, 
	http://lists.gnu.org/archive/html/emacs-orgmode/2009-11/msg01166.html
I have the latest git version of org mode, and I think I've set
comint-prompt-regexp correctly.

So: I don't want to filter the output, I don't want to collect the results
- just send the commands and go.

Looking at ob-sh.el/org-babel-sh-evaluate, I can't figure out what the
Right Thing to do is.  Appended is a cheap hack that checks for "ignore" as
a results string (e.g. #+begin_src sh :session *shell* :results ignore) and
sends the lines one at a time to the inferior shell buffer.  But I suspect
there's a more straightforward way to do it.

Thoughts?
Thanks.
