fun <T : Comparable<T>> Array<out T>.sortDescending(
    fromIndex: Int,
    toIndex: Int)

Sorts elements of the array in the specified range in-place. The elements are sorted descending according to their natural sort order.

The sort is stable. It means that equal elements preserve their order relative to each other after sorting.

Parameters

fromIndex - the start of the range (inclusive) to sort.

toIndex - the end of the range (exclusive) to sort.

Exceptions

IndexOutOfBoundsException - if fromIndex is less than zero or toIndex is greater than the size of this array.

IllegalArgumentException - if fromIndex is greater than toIndex.
