Subject: :mkdirp without path specifier
Date: Thu, 1 May 2014 15:47:17 -0400	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <14FCE026-6FA3-409F-87F6-B2E9B1452C9E@gmail.com> (raw)

If it intended that setting :mkdirp yes should break tangling with 'directory-free' file names?

I.e., should
#+TITLE: test
#+BEGIN_SRC python :mkdirp yes :tangle test.py
print 1+2

tangle without error? 

It currently doesn't because (file-name-directory "test.py"), which is nil, gets passed to make-directory, which throws an error. 

The manual is ambiguous, stating only that the arg to :tangle is interpreted as a path. A strict reading says this shouldn't work, regardless of :mkdirp, since we're not giving a path, but I think the "understood ./" of :mkdirp no is reasonable. 

I'm not in a position to do so now, but can send a one-line patch to fix tonight if wanted.
