All,\n\nHow best to go about this? >>\n\nI have a list containing strings referring to months, like ["x_apr",\n"x_jul", "x_jan", "x_aug", "x_may", etc] -\- always using the 3-chars\nfor month. The list will contain all 12 months, however the starting\nmonth may not necessarily be jan. I want to order the list\nchronologically, but starting with the user-defined starting month.\nSo a list could be [x_aug, x_sep, .... x_jul]. The list might just\nstart off in any random order, but I need to ensure, in the end, that\nthe list is in chronological order and starting with the proper month\nper user needs.\n\nAnyone have any good ideas? I was curious to see what people came up\nwith.
