Python provides lists structures in order to hold multiple elements in a single variable like an array. Generally same type of data is hold in this elements and we may want to sort them for value or key, incremental or decrementally. In this tutorial we will examine sorting Python List structure in different ways.

Example Python List

Before starting examples with sort operation we will create a simple list like below. This list consist of vowels as we can see below.

Sort List with sort() Function

In this example we will use sort() function of the list which is names mylist . After the sort operation the elements of the list will be sorted. So we will print list to see this .
