ReverseSort

ReverseSort[list]

sorts the elements of list into reverse canonical order.

ReverseSort[list,p]

sorts using the ordering function p.

Details

  • ReverseSort by default orders integers and rational and approximate real numbers by their numerical values, sorting from largest to smallest.
  • ReverseSort gives the same result as reversing Sort except it does not reverse ties.
  • ReverseSort[list,p] applies the function p to pairs of elements in list to determine whether they are in order. The default function p is Order.
  • ReverseSort can be used on expressions with any head, not only List.
