I have the following source block of Scheme code:
#+BEGIN_SRC scheme :results value verbatim append (define shift (lambda (list-with-sublists) (cond [(pair? (car list-with-sublists)) (cons (car (car list-with-sublists)) (cons (cdr (car list-with-sublists)) (cdr list-with-sublists)))] [else (cons (car list-with-sublists) (cdr list-with-sublists))]))) (shift '(a (b c) d)) #+END_SRC
However, it seems that org-mode cannot resist formatting the resulting list as a table and it will output tables, disregarding the
#+RESULTS: | a | (b c) | d | | a | (b c) | d | | a | (b c) | d |
I have tried it with
silent and in the minibuffer the output is only a string
(a (b c) d). So I went ahead and tried to output the same string in Python, to see, whether it is programming language related:
#+BEGIN_SRC python :results output verbatim replace print("(a (b c) d)") #+END_SRC #+RESULTS: : (a (b c) d)
This works just fine.
verbatim only does not work for my Scheme code.
What am I doing wrong?
GNU Emacs 26.1 (build 1, x86_64-pc-linux-gnu, GTK+ Version 3.24.0) of 2018-11-14
By now I have figured out, that I can get a string output, but only, if I format the Scheme value as a string already in my code. Probably the issue is, that Org-babel does not know how to deal with arbitrary values from any programming language.
