**No numerical sort in python ?!?!?**

I was really surprised to see that python can't do such an elementary operation!

I am trying to do a numerical sort in python on an array. I am using python for windows (DOS). In perl you can simply write sort{$a<=>$b}@a and this will sort it according to the value of the numerical string, (not the alphabetical value). I am looking for something similar in python but could only find a reference to sourceforge numpy where I have to download a large piece of source code in C and recompile it locally. Is there a simpler solution ? thanks.....
