Re: Inline references in noweb?

I think this is what you need. I am not sure if you can expand noweb outside a src block, so I use an inline src block to get this.

#+name: required_date
#+BEGIN_SRC text :exports none
Jan 5, 2020

In order to engage the flux capacitor, you must set the
  chronometer dial to src_emacs-lisp[:noweb yes :exports results]{"<<required_date>>"} {{{results(=Jan 5\, 2020=)}}}.

#+begin_src conf :noweb yes
date: <<required_date>>

I’m quite pleased with how babel and noweb can be used to write
“literate programs” for configuration files and scripts.

Cross references between code blocks with <<noweb-references>> work
just fine. What I’d like, but can’t work out, is how to refer to, for
example, a configuration value inline. Something like this:

  In order to engage the flux capacitor, you must set the
  chronometer dial to ~<<required_date>>~.

  #+begin_src conf :noweb yes
  date: <<required_date>>

I don’t care how or where “required_date” is defined, I just want the
ability to refer to it in the documentation and in code blocks.

Have I overlooked something obvious?
