I want to do a sort on a list of objects based on a similar attributes in each object for example time of creation of this object.


class Student: ... def __init__(self, name, age):
... self.name = name
... self.age = age
...
students = [Student('John', 18), Student('Jill', 17)]
students.sort(lambda x,y: cmp(x.age, y.age))
[student.name for student in students] ['Jill', 'John']


See `help(list.sort)` for details.
