import java.util.Comparator;

 * Compare two files using the <b>default</b> {@link File#compareTo(File)} method.
 * <p>
 * This comparator can be used to sort lists or arrays of files
 * by using the default file comparison.
 * <p>
 * Example of sorting a list of files using the
 * {@link #DEFAULT_COMPARATOR} singleton instance:
 * <pre>
 *       List&lt;File&gt; list = ...
 *       Collections.sort(list, DefaultFileComparator.DEFAULT_COMPARATOR);
 * </pre>
 * <p>
 * Example of doing a <i>reverse</i> sort of an array of files using the
 * {@link #DEFAULT_REVERSE} singleton instance:
 * <pre>
 *       File[] array = ...
 *       Arrays.sort(array, DefaultFileComparator.DEFAULT_REVERSE);
 * </pre>
