Sort[{1,2,3,4},Abs[#1-#2]>1&]

 Hi Mathgroup,

 the above yields {2,1,4,3}, what is not what I wanted
 .
 I would like to see for instance {3,1,4,2}. I think this happens because
 only adjacent pairs are compared AND REORDERD. 
 But Sort[{1,2,3,4},False] gives {1,2,3,4}.
 Can somebody tell me when Mma reorders the members of the list.

 Thanks 

 Michael Trott
