The easiest way to sort is with the sorted(list) function, which takes a list and returns a new list with those elements in sorted order.

The original list is not changed. a = [5, 1, 4, 3] print sorted(a) ## [1, 3, 4, 5] print a ## [5, 1, 4, 3] It's most common to pass a list into the sorted() function, but in fact it can take as input any sort of iterable collection. The older list.sort() method is an alternative detailed below. The sorted() function seems easier to use compared to sort(), so I recommend using sorted(). The sorted() function can be customized though optional arguments. Strs = ['aa', 'BB', 'zz', 'CC'] print sorted(strs) ## ['BB', 'CC', 'aa', 'zz'] (case sensitive) print sorted(strs, reverse=True) ## ['zz', 'aa', 'CC', 'BB'] Custom Sorting With key= For more complex custom sorting, sorted() takes an optional "key=" specifying a "key" function that transforms each element before comparison.

You can also pass in your own MyFn as the key function, like this: sort() method. 1st Order Linear Circuits (electronics) A new release in our Freedom of... - Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) In a First, Government Acknowledges the Limits of Section 215.
