Subject: passing variables to lilypond code blocks
Date: Thu, 18 Feb 2021 12:42:45 +0100
Message-ID: <> (raw)

I’m trying to understand how ob-lilypond handles variables.
I have the following minimal example which compiles correctly:
#+begin_src lilypond :file test.png :cache no
  myVar = { e f g}
  \relative c' { a b c d \myVar }

Can I move the definition of myVar to a header argument of the 
source block?
When I write this: 
#+begin_src lilypond :file test.png :cache no :var 
 myVar="{ e f g }"
  \relative c' { a b c d \myVar }
The compiler complains: "unknown escaped string: `\myVar'".

This makes me think that myVar is not passed at all to the code 
block. What is the correct way to do this?

I know that I can do it with noweb syntax. However, I would prefer 
to use header args because I need those variables in all lilypond 
code blocks. Ultimately, I plan to pass them from
