[-- Attachment #1.1: Type: text/plain, Size: 564 bytes --]

Attached is a patch to allow one to specify that results from executing a
block should go to a specific buffer.

When a :buffer is specified, output goes to that buffer, which is erased
first, e.g.:

  #+begin_src sh :results buffer
  echo foo
  #+end_src

When no :buffer is specified, buffer *org results* is used, e.g.:

  #+begin_src sh :results buffer
  echo foo
  #+end_src

I've tried to follow the conventions for contributions to Org mode, buf if
I've missed something, please let me know.  (I'm happy to sign the FSF
paperwork.)

Thank you for Org mode!

Sorry, the first example was supposed to be:

  #+begin_src sh :results buffer :buffer *foo*
  echo foo
  #+end_src

Subject: [PATCH] ob-core.el: block result output to buffer

* lisp/ob-core.el (org-babel-execute-src-block): Support buffers.
Allow specifying that results from executing a block should go to a
buffer.

When a :buffer is specified, output goes to that buffer, which is
erased first, e.g.:

  #+begin_src sh :results buffer :buffer *foo*
  echo foo
  #+end_src

When no :buffer is specified, buffer "*org results*" is used, e.g.:

  #+begin_src sh :results buffer
  echo foo
  #+end_src

Also fixed typo: "it's" vs. "its".
