Hi Max,

This is one bit of literate programming I haven't mastered myself yet. I 
generally have code blocks and print results, and then manually re-enter them 
in the paragraph below. I would like what you are looking for. The best 
solution I have, which I don't use often, is to use sessions and inline code.

For example, to insert the number three I could do the following, if a = 1 and 
b = 2, defined previously in session "foo": src_octave[:session foo]{a+b} 

I've been thinking about other ways to achieve this... perhaps my code blocks 
update a table. That table might be included in the text for the reader. Then 
one code session reads it all in, so I have access to all results in one 
session and can use them in the text...
