Sv: Sv: Christmas wish: Literate Elisp

Hello again,

I was able to make readevalloop do what I want. It was rather trivial to
implement this (once I realized how it works 🙂). Emacs built fine and I was
able to test wtih eval-buffer and eval-regionwhich worked as intended.

It was just 4 code lines, I just copied codeto parse comment and change the
condition in if-statement:

(message "Hello, World!")

(message "Hello Again!")

In code blocs the ';' is still a comment delimiter:

 ;; Here is a line comment
 "I am a bit chatty today!")

That's it for today folks!

(message "Bye bye cruel world!")

This email was composed in scratch buffer and executed during writing with
eval-buffer for testing.

However, byte compiler is not happy about this. It emits warnings
for every word out of code blocks as references to free variables. I am not sure
where to look to patch it, maybe another day.

The fact that it's written is Haskell is just incidental.

Hmm... The closest I can find is https://github.com/jingtaozf/literate-elisp/
but it doesn't quite match what I think I was referring to.
