First, the second call to end-of-line is useless, since you're already at the end of the line. Second, what is wrong if point is at an empty line? Why do you want to move it back? > + (point)))) You may want to use `line-end-position'. > + (save-excursion > + (goto-char beg) > + (cond > + ((not (re-search-forward "^[^\n,]+$" end t)) '(4)) > + ((not (re-search-forward "^[^\n\t]+$" end t)) '(16)) > + ((not (re-search-forward "^[^\n;]+$" end t)) ";") > + ((not (re-search-forward "^[^\n:]+$" end t)) ":") > + ((not (re-search-forward "^\\([^'\"][^\n\s][^'\"]\\)+$" end t)) " ") > + (t nil))))) I think you need to wrap `save-excursion' around each `re-search-forward' call. Otherwise each test starts at the first line containing the separator previously tested. > + > ;;;###autoload > (defun org-table-convert-region (beg0 end0 &optional separator) > "Convert region to a table. > @@ -862,10 +891,7 @@ org-table-convert-region > integer When a number, use that many spaces, or a TAB, as field separator > regexp When a regular expression, use it to match the separator > nil When nil, the command tries to be smart and figure out the > - separator in the following way: > - - when each line contains a TAB, assume TAB-separated material > - - when each line contains a comma, assume CSV material > - - else, assume one or more SPACE characters as separator." > + separator using `org-table-guess-seperator'." I wonder if creating a new function is warranted here. You could add the news checks after those already present in the code, couldn't you? Regards, -- Nicolas Goaziou
