sorts the elements of list into reverse canonical order.
sorts using the ordering function p.
- 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.

NumericalOrder treats 3 and 3.`10 as a tie:
For ordering functions returning -1, 0, 1, the reverse ordering is obtained composing with Minus:
ReverseSort orders a list of pairs of numbers by decreasing the first element:
Use ReverseSortBy to select which element is sorted in decreasing order:
