* Is it possible to run shell script src blocks as root or to export individual blocks?

I was wondering if there was an easy way to execute some shell
commands contained in a src block as root.  Alternatively, is there a
quick way to export _just_ that one source block to a temp file so
that I could run it as root manually?

You could set up sudo so that it does not require a password and prefix each
command that needs to be run as root with "sudo":

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

* foo

#+BEGIN_SRC sh
sudo id

#+END_SRC

#+RESULTS:
: uid=0(root) gid=0(root) groups=0(root)
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

Not sure how sudo would interact with babel if you had to type in a password.

Hi, I've recently switched from Org 7.4 to the master branch on the git
repository, and I've encountered this weird situation.

  #+name: foo
  #+begin_src emacs-lisp 
    (defun foo ()
      42)
    (foo)
  #+end_src emacs-lisp

If I evaluate this block I get:

  #+name: foo
=42
=emacs-lisp

Though it works as expected if I remove the name:

  #+begin_src emacs-lisp 
    (defun foo ()
      42)
    (foo)
  #+end_src emacs-lisp
=>
  #+begin_src emacs-lisp 
    (defun foo ()
      42)
    (foo)
  #+end_src emacs-lisp

  #+RESULTS:
  : 42

I've tried to figure out what was the problem and it lies in the regexp
org-babel-src-name-w-name-regexp.

So far I've found those workarounds:

No spaces after the ':'

  #+name:foo
  #+begin_src emacs-lisp 
    (defun foo ()
      42)
    (foo)
  #+end_src emacs-lisp
=>
  #+name:foo
  #+begin_src emacs-lisp 
    (defun foo ()
      42)
    (foo)
  #+end_src emacs-lisp

  #+RESULTS: foo
  : 42

Add parentheses after the name.

  #+name: foo()
  #+begin_src emacs-lisp 
    (defun foo ()
      42)
    (foo)
  #+end_src emacs-lisp
=>
  #+name: foo()
  #+begin_src emacs-lisp 
    (defun foo ()
      42)
    (foo)
  #+end_src emacs-lisp

  #+RESULTS: foo
  : 42

No spaces before the src block

  #+name: foo
#+begin_src emacs-lisp 
    (defun foo ()
      42)
    (foo)
  #+end_src emacs-lisp
=>
  #+name: foo
#+begin_src emacs-lisp 
    (defun foo ()
      42)
    (foo)
  #+end_src emacs-lisp

#+RESULTS: foo
: 42

Bug confirmed (but I didn't try all your workarounds, just the no spaces
before the #+begin_src and no space after the colon in the #+name).

I take it it was working on 7.4?

Nick

PS. One side note: the syntax of code blocks is

     #+NAME: <name>
     #+BEGIN_SRC <language> <switches> <header arguments>
       <body>
     #+END_SRC

so no emacs-lisp on the #+end_src line.

Indeed, I don't know why I've pasted it like this, normally I don't do
it.

Just call org-babel-tangle with a prefix argument and it only tangles
the current block

This was caused by a commit of mine yesterday, I've just pushed up a fix
and a protecting test case.

Works nicely.

By the way, org-babel is awesome, thanks for your efforts!

Hi,

I did not know this either.  Thanks for the hint!

Shouldn't this be mentioned in the manual (14.4)?

I have two questions/issues about this:
(1) Can I get noweb-references to be expanded by this?  Or how would I
    tangle one block with noweb references expanded?
(2) I am asked for a filename.  But the header argument :tangle somefile
    is overruling my input, which is un-expected.

Regards,
Andreas

Under Gnome, I'm using this at the beginning of a sh source block:

 echo -e "#! /bin/bash\n/usr/bin/gksudo -p -m Password" > /tmp/gksudo-stdout
 chmod +x /tmp/gksudo-stdout
 SUDO_ASKPASS="/tmp/gksudo-stdout" sudo -A -s

There was a conflict between the narrowing to a single code block caused
by the prefix argument, and the code which searches for replacements to
noweb elements.  I've just pushed up a fix so noweb elements should now
expand as normal.

This is now fixed as well.

Hi Eric,

thanks for both fixes!  Tangling of single source blocks is a really
nice feature now!

Regards,
Andreas

Hi all,

I just pulled a fresh version of org, and this tangling an individual
block only works if there's a :tangle header argument present.  I
don't think this is the intended behavior!  The problem, it seems, is
that when :tangle is not present, the (or ...) in the code below
always evaluates to true.

#+begin_src emacs-lisp
      (unless (or (cdr (assoc :tangle (nth 2 (org-babel-get-src-block-info))))
		  target-file)
	(setq target-file
	      (read-from-minibuffer "Tangle to: " (buffer-file-name)))))
#+end_src

Thanks for raising this issue.  I can not apply patches to the git
repository until the recent git issues are sorted, so I am attaching the
patch to this email so that you can apply it locally if you like.  I
will push this up once our git repository is back in working order.

Best,
