You could do something like this:
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. >>> line1 = '12345648737276488'
  2. >>> line2 = 'abcdef'
  3. >>> import string
  4. >>> numbers = set('1234567890')
  5. >>> alpha = set(string.ascii_letters)
  6. >>> set(line1).issubset(numbers)
  7. True
  8. >>> set(line2).issubset(alpha)
  9. True
  10. >>> set(line2).issubset(numbers)
  11. False
  12. >>>

By what criteria are you reordering the data to write to another file?

If your problem is about reading from and into files...

FileObj = open(Filename,mode) eg:f = open("tmp.txt","w")

read and readlines can be used to read data from file
eg: FileData = f.read() reads all the data of file into FileData

write and writelines can be used to write

coming to your string manipulations

someString = 'A string'

someString.isalpha() = True
someString.isalnum() = True
someString.isdigit() = Flase

someString = '123456'

someString.isalpha() = False
someString.isalnum() = True
someString.isdigit() = True

may be if you explain your sorting criteria it would be more explanatory
