    I am not sure what you are trying to do and the above line does not make sense. If you have a list of say L=[3,2,1,4] and do L.sort() L will now be [1,2,3,4]. If you do L.reverse() on the original list you will get [4,1,2,3]. If you wanted to compare if doing both are the same it would be more like. L=[3,2,1,4] Lsort = L[:] Lsort.sort() Lrev = L[:] Lrev = Lrev.reverse() if Lsort == Lrev: print 'True' else: print 'False'
