What is the best way to compare the *contents* of two different
lists regardless of their respective order? The lists will have
the same number of items, and be of the same type.
E.g. a trivial example (my lists will be larger),
a=[1, 2, 3]
b=[2, 3, 1]
should yield true if a==b
I suppose I could sort them and then compare them. I.e.,
I am wondering if there is a more efficient/preferred way to do so.
