interestingly I did not found a good solution after a bit of thinking...
The best I could come up with is something like this (which doesn't work):


#+name: foosql
#+BEGIN_SRC sql :dbuser weather :database environment :engine postgresql
select time, temperature from weather limit 10;
#+END_SRC


#+begin_src emacs-lisp :results raw :var hosts=(list "db1" "db2" "db3")
(dolist (host hosts)
  (org-sbe foosql (concat ":dbhost " host)))
#+end_src

Error: Symbol's definition is void: host. I guess that's caused by the
way the macro is evaluated. And the result, if any, of the sql query had
to be transformed back into a nice table for some use cases.

Using other means of calling a code block, like #+call etc., aren't
suitable for usage in a loop. So maybe someone can come up with a nice
solution ;).

Hi David,

One thing you can do is to make a code block, which will generate
another code block, running your script with different arguments.
Let me illustrate with a simple example:

#+name: printecho
#+BEGIN_SRC sh :var a=1
  echo $a;
#+END_SRC

#+name: genscript
#+BEGIN_SRC sh :var cmd="printecho" :results raw output  :wrap "src sh :noweb 
yes :results output"
  echo "cat << EOF"
  for x in "1" "2" "3" "4" "5" "6" "something"; do echo "<<$cmd(a=\"$x\")>>"; 
done
#+END_SRC

#+RESULTS: genscript
#+BEGIN_src sh :noweb yes :results output
  cat << EOF
  <>
  <>
  <>
  <>
  <>
  <>
  <>
#+END_src

#+RESULTS:
: 1
: 2
: 3
: 4
: 5
: 6
: something

Hope it helps.

P.S. Does anyone know why the following does not evaluate noweb
recursively?

#+BEGIN_SRC sh :noweb yes :results output 
  <>
#+END_SRC

Regards,
Ihor

Hi Michael,

Yes, I think this is a way to my previous question. But what I really want
to achieve is to loop through a list of server names and execute a script
on them.

Say I have 20 different database server. How can I do a loop with each
server?


Regards,
David

did you think about something like this?


(setq hmw/dbhost "db1")

#+BEGIN_SRC sql :dbhost (symbol-value 'hmw/dbhost) :dbuser weather :database 
environment :engine postgresql
select time, temperature from weather limit 20;
#+END_SRC

[O] Is it possible to pass variable to variables of src block?

2017-12-04 Thread Xi Shen
Hi,

http://orgmode.org/manual/var.html

This wiki explains how to use variable inside a src block. But I wonder if
it is possible to specify variable to the variables in the src definition.

E.g. for the sql src block, I want to execute a script on different server.
I want to define a variable for the ":dbhost" variable.
