[Apologies if my earlier version of this query was answered and I missed
it.]
You can put text comments inside an Input cell using the (* ---- *)
syntax and they'll be displayed, but not executed.
Is it possible to have an "anti-comment" capability -- maybe indicated
by an anti-comment syntax like *( --Input stuff-- )* -- that will do
the opposite?
That is, I'd like to be able to insert properly coded Input expressions
inside a Text cell and have them be executed -- *without* messing with
the basic Text cell structure.
Example: Define, using an Input cell in the initialization part of a
notebook,
results := Module[{}, Plot[{x, Sin[a x]}, {x, 0, Pi}]
and then, later in the notebook, have Text cells (*standard* Text cells)
with contents like:
But if we change the input parameter to be *( a = 3 )*, the
new *( result )* looks quite different:
- - plot shows up here --
And if we chose *( a = 4 )* the *( result )* is really
different:
- - another plot shows up here --
NOTE!! I'm not asking how one might define any such *( )* commands to
accomplish this result -- I'm just using them to illustrate how the
executable subcells would fit into the text cells.
Section 1.1.10 of The Book tells how to insert a differently formatted
formula in a text cell using ctrl-( and ctrl-). My question is: using
any kind of menu commands or mousing around, can an inserted subcell
that is displayed inside a standard Text (or Heading) cell be made
executable???
