Bug #10125: Array#sort and #sort! documentation issue
https://bugs.ruby-lang.org/issues/10125#change-50778

* Author: Maxime Rty
* Status: Assigned
* Priority: Normal
* Assignee: Zachary Scott
* Category: doc
* Target version: 
* ruby -v: 2.1.2
* Backport: 2.0.0: UNKNOWN, 2.1: UNKNOWN
----------------------------------------
The documentation about the values that should be returned by the block is backwards.

a <=> b will return -1 if a is lower than b, i.e. b follows a (in the sorted array).
a <=> b will return 1 if a is greater than b, i.e. a follows b (in the sorted array).

Using the "follows" verbal form might not be the best choice here, but I'd rather let a native english speaker rephrase it if needed.

This part of the documentation is backwards since the 2.0.0 release (commit53b61ccb).

Thanks.
