Hi

I am trying to print out the contents of a directory, sorted.

**************** the code ****************
     1	import os, sys
     2	
     3	if len(sys.argv) < 2:
     4	    sys.exit("please enter a suitable directory.")
     5	
     6	print os.listdir(sys.argv[1]).sort()
****************************************************************

if I remove ".sort()" at the end of line 6 I get an unsorted list of
files, if I leave it I get None. who do I fix this?

thank you
