Hello again list,

Just for completeness I want to post my solution to the below issue. It
turned out the behaviour was caused by the variable
org-src-tab-acts-natively. When set this seems to activate reading the
header arguments when tabbing in the src block.

My solution now is to move the evaluation to a call statement:
    #+name: do-stuff
    #+begin_src sh
        echo $USER
    #+end_src

    #+CALL: do-stuff[:dir (concat "/ssh:" (read-string "login name: ")
"@some.other.place:/scratch")]

Regards
Andreas

Hi,

I was running in to an issue when trying to run a piece of code on a remote
machine.
I run the following:
#+begin_src <https://plus.google.com/s/%23%2Bbegin_src> sh :dir (concat
"/ssh:" (read-string "login name: ") "@some.other.place:")
     echo $USER
#+end_src <https://plus.google.com/s/%23%2Bend_src>

the idea here was that the code block would prompt the user for the login
name and proceed to evalue the code on the remote machine. This works as I
want it.
However now when I try to edit the code in the block and press TAB for
indentation the block prompts me again for a "user name:" twice.

I'm not sure how to go further from here or why this last thing happens.
I'm guessing that the header string is read when the code block tries to
determine what code is in there but is there a way to get the behaviour I
want without this side effect?

Regards
Andreas
