A small utility function that I used to sort the names of people who commented on my blog.
(defun org-get-link-desc-from-list () """ Get link description of a list item containing just links """ (let* ((item-beg (point)) (item-end (org-end-of-item)) (cur-item (buffer-substring-no-properties item-beg item-end))) (goto-char item-beg) (org-columns-compact-links cur-item)))
sort-lines wasn't good enough for me, since it was sorting
alphabetically and it ended up being the sorted order of the urls
and not the names. This function, when used with
org-sort-entries-or-items gave me what I wanted.
Thanks to benny (on #org-mode), I also learnt the difference
