Hi,

Say I've got a sh code block invoking curl to some json api, is it possible
some way to specify that the format of the output when :results output code
is in a json code block and *not* a sh code block?

#+begin_src sh :results output code :exports both
curl
https://our-service.org/getstuff?username=dirk\&password=catsbrithday\&fmt=json
#+end_src

#+results:
#+BEGIN_SRC sh
{"userinfo" : {"id" : "QNCNFQUKKBCTTMAOIUFNOQVLDUFAJV", "fullname" : "Gekke
Dirk", "role" : "user"}}
#+END_SRC

whereas I'd like it to be

#+results:
#+BEGIN_SRC json
{"userinfo" : {"id" : "QNCNFQUKKBCTTMAOIUFNOQVLDUFAJV", "fullname" : "Gekke
Dirk", "role" : "user"}}
#+END_SRC

Any thoughts on how to go about this? Do other people have this same issue
and should there come an option in babel that handles this (one language
outputting source code for another?), or is there a way to specify ones own
outputter?

Does this help you?  (Lacking a relevant example)

#+begin_src R :results output latex
1+1
#+end_src

#+results:
#+BEGIN_LaTeX
[1] 2
#+END_LaTeX

FYI, this is a need I also have, for example AWK outputting SQL code. There
has been some threads about this, but nothing is implemented so far in this
direction.

I like very much the idea of your workaround. Great thought!

Though, nope, it does not help the OP, because the echo lines don't output
anything here, as # is the symbol to begin a comment (in shell scripts). So,
the first line simply outputs a blank line...

Best regards,
  Seb

Hi Niels,

Currently there is no way to specify the type of returned source code
block.  Hopefully one of Rainer or Rasmus' suggestions to this thread
should serve as a sufficient work around.

I would augment Rainer's solution changing it to the following...

#+begin_src sh :results scalar raw
  echo "#+begin_src json"
    curl https://our-service.org/getstuff?username=dirk\&password=catsbrithday\&fmt=json
  echo "#+end_src json"
#+end_src

which works for me -- or presumably would work for me if our-service
could getstfff for dirk with password catsbirthday.

Cheers -- Eric

Could you escape the comment character by using \#?

Yes, that does work as well (alternative to Eric's quoting method):

#+begin_src sh :results output raw :exports both
echo \#+BEGIN_SRC json
echo curl
echo https://our-service.org/getstuff?username=dirk\&password=catsbrithday\&fmt=json
echo \#+END_SRC
#+end_src

but my point was intended to be more general: this workaround may be difficult
to use for differnet languages to marry (my own need, in the past, was for AWK
outputting SQL + another I've forgotten about right now).

Anyway, this currently can be made to work, as shown.

Best regards,
  Seb

PS- I was expecting that multiple evaluations of the code block would lead to
    multiple results blocks, because of the raw specifier. It's not the case.
    Is is perfectly normal and explainable, or a corner case which favors --
    in this case -- this workaround?

To all people in this thread,

Thank you for all the responses.

The echoing of #+begin_src and #end_src is indeed a workaround that I
had not thought of myself, though it is not that general, and puts stuff
in the source that really oughtn't be there.

In the mean time I came up with a piece of advise to
`org-babel-insert-result' that does the trick in a general way.

#+begin_src emacs-lisp
  (defadvice org-babel-insert-result (around pft/output-type)
    (let* ((all-params (caddr info))
           (lang (or (cdr (assoc :out all-params)) lang)))
      ad-do-it))

(ad-activate 'org-babel-insert-result)
#+end_src

Use it with :out your-choice-of-lang

And while I was at it, I added indentation:

#+begin_src elisp
(defadvice org-babel-insert-result (around pft/output-indent)
  (let* ((all-params (caddr info))
         (indent-after (assoc :indent-after all-params)))
    ad-do-it
    (when indent-after
     (save-excursion
       (when (re-search-forward
              "#\\+begin_src " nil t)
         (beginning-of-line)
         (org-edit-special)
         (indent-region (point-min) (point-max))
         (org-edit-src-exit))))))
#+end_src

so... this it what it does:

#+begin_src sh :results output code :out json :indent-after
  echo "{\"peul\":\"erwt\",\n\"graan\":\"rijst\"}"
#+end_src

#+results:
#+BEGIN_SRC json
  {"peul":"erwt",
   "graan":"rijst"}
#+END_SRC

I do not know whether it plays nice with all other input forms and
:result parameters, as there seem to be some special handlers for e.g.
LaTeX and emacs-lisp, but I guess this would help the AWK->SQL case too.

If this works well enough, these pieces of advise may serve as a basis
for a patch to `org-babel-insert-result'. What do you think?
