Dear list,

would it be possible to incorporate something along these lines in
ox-latex.el (and ox-beamer.el):

#+begin_src emacs-lisp
  (defun headless-latex ()
    "exports to a .tex file without any preamble"
    (interactive)
    (org-latex-export-as-latex nil nil nil t nil)
    )
#+end_src 

[modified from snippet found on
https://stackoverflow.com/questions/8853312/how-can-i-make-org-mode-export-to-latex-with-a-specific-preamble
]

I find sometimes that I have to work with others on a LaTeX
document.  If I can, I prefer writing in org.  Being able to export just
the body of an org document to LaTeX makes it possible to use =\include=
in LaTeX to bring in the section I have written.  The code above will
create what I need but it exports to a buffer, not a file, and is not
accessible via the export interface.

It would be good to have this on C-c C-e l d (for document) and D (for
beamer equivalent) or similar (I'm not particular about actual binding).

My elisp-fu is not up to scratch for something like this.

Thank you,
eric

Isn't it what C-b is for in the export interface?

Why am I not surprised... <blush> Yes, that looks like what I need/want!
Thank you.
