From: Maxim Nikulin <firstname.lastname@example.org> To: email@example.com Subject: greedy substitution in org-open-file Date: Wed, 20 Jan 2021 23:08:35 +0700 [thread overview] Message-ID: <firstname.lastname@example.org> (raw) Looking into the code related to 'pty problem with start-process-shell-command, I have realized that the following case is not handled correctly: #+begin_src elisp (setq org-file-apps '(("\\.pdf::\\([0-9]+\\)\\'" . "xpdf %s %1"))) #+end_src I hope, I adapted an example from [[help:org-file-apps]] correctly. When I try to open the following link using C-c C-o [[file:test-%1f.pdf::42]] I get Running xpdf /home/ubuntu/examples/org/test-\42f.pdf 42...done I believe, it should be Running xpdf /home/ubuntu/examples/org/test-%1f.pdf 42...done Or Running xpdf /home/ubuntu/examples/org/test-\%1f.pdf 42...done Org mode version 9.4.4 (release_9.4.4-164-g7a9a8a The source of the problem is that %s substitution is expanded at first and regexp groups are replaced later. Ideally, it should be performed in a single pass. I have found format-spec function but I am unsure concerning it, maybe it is avoided intentionally.
