/**
 * Compare two files using a set of delegate file {@link Comparator}.

 * This comparator can be used to sort lists or arrays of files

 * Example of sorting a list of files by type (i.e. directory or file)
 * and then by name:
 * <pre>
 *       CompositeFileComparator comparator =
 *                       new CompositeFileComparator(
 *                                   DirectoryFileComparator.DIRECTORY_COMPARATOR,
