New to Python, so please bear with me.
>>> import sys
>>> print sys.modules.keys() # works fine
['code', ...snip... ]
>>> print sys.modules.keys().sort() # returns None, why?
According to my reference (Nutshell), keys() returns a
"copy" of the dict keys as a list, so I would expect when
I aply sort() to that list, I would get an in-place sorted
version of that list. Why do I get None?
