Subject: Re: ':post' Direct execution via Emacs Lisp
Date: Fri, 27 Mar 2015 09:46:22 -0400	[thread overview]

I cannot see anyway to use direct execution of emacs lisp code in this
(and nothing I have tried actually works). Any emacs-lisp code seems to
get evaluated before running the block and *this* is not defined then.

As advertised, this works:

#+name: wrap
#+BEGIN_SRC emacs-lisp :var data=""
(concat "====================\n" data "================\n"))

#+BEGIN_SRC python :post wrap(*this*)
print 66

: ====================
: 66
: ================

But I don't see a way in org-babel-ref-resolve to resolve emacs-lisp as
a :post argument.
