I'm a heavy user of "literate programming" for rapports I write for clients
(in fact, for me, first, but I give them to our clients as well).

Up to a couple of months ago, I was doing literate programming via LaTeX and
nuweb, from Windows as my nuweb binary was just available for that platform.
So, writing a `.w' file from which I extract a `.tex' one and the source code.

Then, the last time I did it, I switched to doing such reports under Ubuntu,
with the noweb package. That is a `.nw' file which is "compiled" to a `.tex',
and which is as well outputting all my code.

This is nice, and works well. But, now, I am trying as hard as possible to
avoid writing LaTeX directly and let Org do the work for me. So, if I can use
Org to create my `.tex' file and the source code from it as well (did I
understand correctly?), then that will be wonderful.

Do you have examples or a tiny tutorial about this?

Best regards,

PS- Excellent you're looking at this, because I thought I was the latest
    "literate programmer" on earth. All the mailing lists about that are
