Subject: How to associate a code block to another one so that it is executed beforehand?
Date: Mon, 15 Feb 2021 15:54:14 -0500	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <87r1lhaw7d.fsf@gmail.com> (raw)

Is it possible to associate a code block (A) to another code block (B)
so that when (A) is executed (B) is executed beforehand? I'm asking this
because I have a bash code block (B) that creates a file that is then
processed by a python code block (A) so before executing (A) block, the
file needs to be created by (B).

I managed to accomplish this only with shell code blocks by creating a
function that gets a code block as an string but now that code blocks
have different languages (bash and python) I can't use this same
approach. Recall that ":prologue" inserts an string at the beginning of
the code block (see minimal working example of this idea below.)

#+NAME: create-file
#+begin_src bash :results silent
cat << EOF > main.txt

#+HEADER: :prologue (org-babel-get-block-as-string "create-file")
#+begin_src bash
cat main.txt
