* org-feed-update doesn't understand the file name of a target Org-file when it is not a constant

Hello!

I do some elisp code to download the latest RSS feeds from some resource:

(setq debug-on-error t)
(org-mode)
(org-feed-update
 '("arxiv"
   "http://export.arxiv.org/rss/astro-ph"
   (concat "~/org/arxiv-" (format-time-string "%Y-%m-%d.org"))
   "arXiv.org"
   )
 )

The goal is to get an unique Org file for feeds per day. However, the error is rising:

Debugger entered--Lisp error: (wrong-type-argument stringp (concat "~/org/arxiv-" (format-time-string "%Y-%m-%d.org")))
  expand-file-name((concat "~/org/arxiv-" (format-time-string "%Y-%m-%d.org")))
  find-file-noselect((concat "~/org/arxiv-" (format-time-string "%Y-%m-%d.org")) nil nil nil)
  find-file((concat "~/org/arxiv-" (format-time-string "%Y-%m-%d.org")))
  org-feed-goto-inbox-internal((concat "~/org/arxiv-" (format-time-string "%Y-%m-%d.org")) "arXiv.org")
  byte-code("\306   \"\307\n\"\310\311
\"\211\312+\211,\203]

When I hardcode a string instead of (concat ...) everything is ok. The subject is also not in format-time-string, it is exactly in concat. The type returned by concat is the stringp, so the situation is very strange. I also tried to use org-feed-alist, and local variable instead of calling concat, nothing helps.

Regards,
Evgeny

The quote in front of ("arxiv"

>  '("arxiv"

"quotes" the following list, i.e. Emacs does not evaluate the Lisp
expressions inside the list but processes it as pure data. 

To calculate the file name each time you call `org-feed-update' either
leave out the quotes like:

(org-feed-update (list "arxiv" "http://export.arxiv.org/rss/astro-ph" (concat … )))

-or-

Use backquotes:

http://www.gnu.org/s/emacs/manual/html_node/elisp/Backquote.html

(org-feed-update
 `("arxiv"
   "http://export.arxiv.org/rss/astro-ph"
   ,(concat "~/org/arxiv-" (format-time-string "%Y-%m-%d.org"))
   "arXiv.org"
  )
)

The ` means: The following structure is data except the parts with the
backquote ,.

Best,
