I need to sort horizontally, not vertically, and
sort seems to be designed for vertical operation. q E.g., I have three rows as follows:
banana/orange/apple/mango potato/tomato/onion/garlic chair/table/carpet/window
All rows have the same number of columns, separated by a
/. I want the columns to be re-arranged according to alphabetical order in row 1. So it will become:
apple/banana/mango/orange onion/potato/garlic/tomato carpet/chair/window/table
This might be better visualized as shown below:
i.e., like sort-by-column in a spreadsheet.
