-- Useful combinator for use in conjunction with the @xxxBy@ family

comparing p x y = compare (p x) (p y)

-- | The 'Down' type allows you to reverse sort order conveniently.  A value of type
-- @'Down' a@ contains a value of type @a@ (represented as @'Down' a@).
-- If @a@ has an @'Ord'@ instance associated with it then comparing two
-- values thus wrapped will give you the opposite of their normal sort order.
-- This is particularly useful when sorting in generalised list comprehensions,
-- as in: @then sortWith by 'Down' x@
--
-- Provides 'Show' and 'Read' instances (/since: 4.7.0.0/).
