Regarding using fully qualified and detailed names: I feel like it is not a good idea for the use case I have with Org Mode. I have multiple big Org files for each programming languages I've used and while using long names might avoid name conflicts, there would be a time in which a name conflict would occur because it is necessary to avoid using a name which has already been used, so for example if I name a code block with =generate-data-for-plotting=, I can't use that same name again. For this reason, I was thinking in the following workaround: use use the ID of the subtree as the prefix of the name of the code blocks. Thus, name conflicts are less likely to occur (see example below). #+begin_src org ,* DONE How to get the number of lines in a file? :PROPERTIES: :ID: ec1f7066-213c-458e-a0f9-786b722218f4 :END: ,#+NAME: ec1f7066-213c-458e-a0f9-786b722218f4/create-file ,#+begin_src dash :results silent cat << EOF > main.txt first second third EOF ,#+end_src ,* DONE How to print most repeated word in a file? :PROPERTIES: :ID: e0768c19-080f-47db-9dc2-3bd00efdd036 :END: ,#+NAME: e0768c19-080f-47db-9dc2-3bd00efdd036/create-file ,#+begin_src dash :results silent cat << EOF > main.txt fizz fizz fizz buzz buzz buzz buzz foo bar bar EOF ,#+end_src #+end_src As we can see above, both =dash= code blocks are given the name =create-file= because both of them create a file but the ID of the heading is used a the prefix in order to avoid a name conflict. Let me know your thoughts on this workaround :) -- Rodrigo Morales. IRC: rdrg109 (freenode)
