Re: Seeking identical output for export

Hi Wesley,

Can you post a small org file that reproduces these problems? Without looking at the entire file it's hard to figure out what's going on.

For example, AFAIK the {{{date}}} macro does not magically expand the current date, rather it refers to the #+DATE property of the document. If this is for some reason not included in your standalone export command, maybe this is the reason why it's not being expanded.

As for the others, I think orgXXXXX is the default auto-generated reference format, so my guess would be that something else in your main Emacs config is enabling the human-readable labels, and which is not being loaded in the script command. I do not really understand the third point about the periods. Again, a self-contained example would help.

I am seeking to find the right way to obtain identical output when exporting an Org file into texinfo using the export menu from within the Org file as well as from a Makefile using an Emacs batch script.

Currently I am using (org-export-to-file ‘texinfo “<file-name>”) from within a Makefile.  This produces a file that has a few differences from that produced by using the export menu 'C-c C-e i t’.

The batch script is:

 emacs -Q --batch --eval '\
          (progn \
            (require '\''org) \
            (require '\''ob) \
            (require '\''ox-texinfo) \
            (require '\''ob-shell) \
            (setq org-confirm-babel-evaluate nil) \
            (find-file "$(ORG)") \
            (org-export-to-file '\''texinfo "$(TEXI)"))'

The differences include:
- the {{{date}}} macro is empty when created with the Makefile
  e.g. subtitle Version 0.0.0
         subtitle Version 0.0.0 2020-01-07 10:05

        The Org source is:
        #+subtitle {{{version}}} {{{date}}}
        #+macro:version Version 0.0.0

        The version macro is expanded but not the date macro.

- references are random strings rather than similar to the #+name when created with the Makefile
  e.g. float Listing,orge1fba27
         float Listing,get-org-filename

- periods at the end of variable references
  e.g. ... exists: $NEWDIR.
         ...exists: $NEWDIR@.

Thank you for any suggestions.
