Maintaining a parser library outside of Emacs would be difficult for the reasons already given. I'd encourage you to pick up some more Elisp, which I am also trying to do. > Anyways, my parser needs aren't that sophisticated: just parse the file, > return headings with clock drawers.

If it's that small you could always do that in Python with regexps for your usage if you're more comfortable in Python. Org's plain text format means you can read it with anything. I suspect grep might even pull headlines and clocks successfully. I haven't looked at the elisp parser much, but I do wonder if someone couldn't write an exporter that exports a programmatic version of your org file data (ie: to xml). Then other tools could ingest those xml files. That'd certainly be a contrib module and not in the core, but might be worth your while to explore the idea if you really want to work with Org data outside of Emacs. ------------------------------------------------------------------ Russell Adams RLAdams@AdamsInfoServ.com PGP Key ID: 0x1160DCB3 http://www.adamsinfoserv.com/ Fingerprint: 1723 D8CA 4280 1EC9 557F 66E8 1154 E018 1160 DCB3
