Hello,

I have this

#+begin_src elisp
&%%(org-diary :deadline* :timestamp :scheduled*)
#+end_src

at line 9 in my main diary file ~/.emacs.d/diary/main. It worked well up
until recently (a week or so, I think). Now I get the following warning:

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
Error (diary): Bad diary sexp at line 9 in ~/.emacs.d/diary/main:
(org-diary :deadline* :timestamp :scheduled*)
Error: (search-failed "\\<SCHEDULED:*<\\([^>]+[0-9]\\{1,2\\}:[0-9]\\{2\\}[0-9+:hdwmy/ 	.-]*\\)>")
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

There seems no obvious error in either the agenda or calendar displays
so I'd be grateful for suggestions as to where to look for the cause of
the warning.

Best wishes,

Colin Baxter.

I cannot help you directly but I do note that my equivalent entry in my
Emacs diary file is subtly different:

%%(org-diary :scheduled :timestamp) ~/s/notes/diary.org

No &, no *s, and a file name at the end.  Having said this, I must admit
that I cannot find any documentation on the format of this line in the
info manual.  Maybe it's hiding...

Thanks Eric. You have reminded me about the file name. I don't have a
file name at the end because I want all my 5 agenda files searched.
However, by entering each file in turn I can now identify the particular
agenda file that's causing the warning. I don't see anything immediately
wrong with it, but it contains multiple schedules with + and - days. I
suspect the problems lies somewhere there.

Thanks again - a great post that jogged my memory.

Best wishes, Colin.

I'm curious about this use of a diary-file in combination with
org-babel. I'm guessing it outputs only specific items from the
diary-file based on some variables? I tried to google this, but
couldn't find anything (or maybe I'm speculating wrong).

There may be some fundamental misunderstanding here.  What does
orb-babel have to do with org mode and the Emacs diary integration?

The Emacs diary & calendar (core Emacs features) allow for elisp sexps
in the diary file and org-diary is an elisp function that returns
information in the form that the diary understands.  There is a section
in the Emacs info manual on the Calendar and the Diary (section 31).

Conversely, the org agenda can make use of Emacs diary expressions as
well!  But that's another story.

Oh. I assumed

#+begin_src elisp
&%%(org-diary :deadline* :timestamp :scheduled*)
#+end_src

is an org-babel code block. But I'll check out that manual section as
well as org-diary.

Yes but I think that was just for the purposes of highlighting the sexp
in the email/post.

Indeed, that was the purpose. I am the op and I apologise if my attempt
to highlight my post caused confusion. Perhaps I stick to

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---

M-x message-mark-inserted-region

--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---


for highlighting.

Best wishes.

Many do this as well (including myself ;-)) although I alternate with
other means of offsetting the code just for the variety... :-)

I can see it well with:

GNU Emacs 27.1 (build 1, i686-pc-linux-gnu, GTK+ Version 3.24.24, cairo
version 1.16.0)
 of 2021-03-27, modified by Debian

Perhaps the problem on the other machine is because of Emacs'
configuration.  I will test it with emacs -q and report.

I will test and report too.  Thank you for your patience.
