Subject: [PATCH] lisp/ob-plantuml.el: Insert results in buffer
Date: Tue, 19 Jul 2022 16:15:21 -0700	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <20220719231520.100206-1-joseph@breatheoutbreathe.in> (raw)

omitted, insert txt output in buffer below src block.

 Passing optional argument will produce the old behaviour.
+*** =org-babel-execute:plantuml= can output ASCII graphs in the buffer
+Previously, executing PlantUML src blocks required a ":file" header argument. Now, if that header argument is omitted, an ASCII graph will be inserted below the src block.
 ** Removed or renamed functions and variables
 *** =org-plantump-executable-args= is renamed and applies to jar as well
