Of course.

That's an interesting idea, and one supported by existing conventions. It's common for Makefiles to write all executables to a subdir, and it's common to have .hgignore (or git) ignore that directory. I think here this issue is that while Org has that ability to specify the output file, the third party tool (latex) which is being called is using the full name and so the output may end up in the current directory. I think that would qualify as an unintended side effect. I think you're correct that Org should try to honor that when calling out, so I hope that patch gets picked up into core. ------------------------------------------------------------------ Russell Adams RLAdams@AdamsInfoServ.com PGP Key ID: 0x1160DCB3 http://www.adamsinfoserv.com/ Fingerprint: 1723 D8CA 4280 1EC9 557F 66E8 1154 E018 1160 DCB3
