I didn't know about this before xD

What happens if you return true instead? Runtime error always? Probably not.

It's sad that you only see this kind of posts after you get wrong answer.
Why isn't this mentioned in tutorials, the only way to know about this is to read the documentation.(or blogs like this which you can never find without searching for)

    You are supposed to read documentation for the function BEFORE using this function

That's not all you should know about it.

In fact, it should be a Strict Weak Ordering.(transitivity and transitivity of equivalence are also needed).

There's a well-known problem which can be solved by Johnson's rule, and a simple greedy solution which sorts the jobs lacks of transitivity of equivalence. The wrong comparator is $$$P(i, j)=\min(a_i,b_j)<\min(a_j,b_i)$$$ , it should be $$$P(i, j)=\begin{cases}a_i< a_j&\min(a_i,b_j)=\min(a_j,b_i)\\min(a_i,b_j)<\min(a_j,b_i)&\text{otherwise}\end{cases}$$$ .

I don't know any English material about this problem except Wikipedia, so here is this problem in Chinese. In this article (also in Chinese) written by me, I discussed about it.

If anyone is interested in it, I can write a blog about it (in English) :)

I guess most learn this the hard way, I certainly did.

So now, I always give my comparator function the name "lessThan". Instead of something like "cmp" before.

Then you always remember to handle equals correctly.
