Description

With this function you can sort all the values within a list, either in ascending or descending order. If the list contains strings, these will be sorted alphabetically, based on the english 26 letter alphabet.

   }

The above code will sort the list indexed in the variable "name_list" if the variable "newgame" is flagged as true.
