I have a list of tuples that look something like this:
("Person 1",10) ("Person 2",8) ("Person 3",12) ("Person 4",20)
What I want produced, is the list sorted in ascending order, by the second value of the tuple. So L should be
("Person 2", 8) after sorting.
How can I do this? Using Python 3.2.2 If that helps.
Now we will see solution for issue: Sort tuples based on second parameter
You can use the
key parameter to
my_list.sort(key=lambda x: x)
or, slightly faster,
(As with any module, you’ll need to
import operator to be able to use it.)
