Re: PicoLisp added to Org-Babel

2011-10-26 Thread Alexander Burger
Hi Thorsten,

 I would like to announce that I (with help and substancial
 input from Eric Schulte, the org-babel author) added picolisp to the
 multilanguage-programming environment org-babel
 ((http://orgmode.org/worg/org-contrib/babel/index.html), that is part of
 the great emacs library orgmode (http://orgmode.org/).

Nice. Many thanks!


 I can imagine using org-babel as a flexilbe database reporting tool for
 picolisp. It should be very easy, e.g., to build a dynamic database
 report by sending data from a picolisp codeblock to a R codeblock for
 analysis, print the results into the .org file, and export it to html or
 latex.

Indeed, this seems to open a lot of possibilities. I didn't know about
org-babel, and I also must confess that I'm not an emacs user.


 Org-babel could be useful for documenting picolisp source-code too.

Cheers,
- Alex

there is even a vim clone of orgmode, but I don't know how usable it is:
http://www.vim.org/scripts/script.php?script_id=3342

I don't think it offers org-babel funcionality, but who knows...

PS
It must have been late when I wrote the announcement-mail, since I
messed up all the technical terms in it. Here is a little quote that
gives the correct terms:

,
| Babel supports Literate Programming (LP) by allowing the act of
| programming to take place inside of Org-mode documents. The Org-mode   
| file can then be exported (woven in LP speak) to HTML or LaTeX for 
| consumption by a human, and the embedded source code can be extracted  
| (tangled in LP speak) into structured source code files for consumption
| by a computer.

Cool, this might accommodate me even better ;-)

A bit of a drawback is that the project seems to have paused since
more than a year.
