       Perl::Critic::Policy::BuiltinFunctions::ProhibitReverseSortBlock - Forbid $b before $a in
       sort blocks.


       This Policy is part of the core Perl::Critic distribution.


       Conway says that it is much clearer to use "reverse" than to flip $a and $b around in a
       "sort" block.  He also suggests that, in newer perls, "reverse" is specifically looked for
       and optimized, and in the case of a simple reversed string "sort", using "reverse" with a
       "sort" with no block is faster even in old perls.

           my @foo = sort { $b cmp $a } @bar;         #not ok
           my @foo = reverse sort @bar;               #ok

           my @foo = sort { $b <=> $a } @bar;         #not ok
           my @foo = reverse sort { $a <=> $b } @bar; #ok


       This Policy is not configurable except for the standard options.
