@FunctionalInterface public interface ShortComparator extends Comparator<Short>
Comparator
; provides methods to compare two primitive
types both as objects and as primitive types.
Note that fastutil
provides a corresponding abstract class that can
be used to implement this interface just by specifying the typespecific
comparator.

In the foregoing description, the notation sgn(expression) designates the mathematical signum function, which is defined to return one of 1, 0, or 1 according to whether the value of expression is negative, zero or positive.
The implementor must ensure that sgn(compare(x, y)) == sgn(compare(y, x)) for all x and y. (This implies that compare(x, y) must throw an exception if and only if compare(y, x) throws an exception.)
The implementor must also ensure that the relation is transitive: ((compare(x, y)>0) && (compare(y, z)>0)) implies compare(x, z)>0.
Finally, the implementor must ensure that compare(x, y)==0 implies that sgn(compare(x, z))==sgn(compare(y, z)) for all z.
It is generally the case, but not strictly required that (compare(x, y)==0) == (x.equals(y)). Generally speaking, any comparator that violates this condition should clearly indicate this fact. The recommended language is "Note: this comparator imposes orderings that are inconsistent with equals."
This implementation delegates to the corresponding typespecific method.
