Hello, I would like the tangle functionality of org-mode to generate line directives so that compilers generate correct location for errors. I am using the following settings, using the `:comments' feature of tangle:
;; Do not comment comments (setq org-babel-tangle-uncomment-comments t) ;; Beginning: set line directives (this is for OCaml) (setq org-babel-tangle-comment-format-beg "# %start-line \"%file\"\n") ;; No end template [Remember that they are not commented] (setq org-babel-tangle-comment-format-end " ") This works surprsingly well for ordinary code blocks but breaks down when noweb is used. Indeed control is passed to ob-babel-expand-noweb-references which comments the "comment" (I see this can be confusing) because it ignores the setting. My question is: is this the indented behaviour? Also, I do think such a behaviour should be supported out of the box: this is very important for compiled languages. Best wishes, Simon.
