Subject: [PATCH] org-table-import: Give option to import interactively even if filename doesn't match
Date: Fri, 16 Apr 2021 14:31:42 +0530	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <8735vqzjpl.fsf@gmail.com> (raw)


Can we give small flexibility in choosing the filename interactively for
`org-table-import'?  Currently org-table-import will just throw an error
when file name doesn't have .txt, .csv or .tsv as extension.

This patch tries to add a simple yes-and-no to let user choose if they
want to continue importing or not.
