How can I sort a file with pairs <Key Value> in reverse order?
I created a MapReduce job example that that uses the sort mechanism of
hadoop to sort a file by the key in ascending order. This is an example of
the data:

7    vim
2    emacs
9    firefox

At the end, I get the result:

2    emacs
7    vim
 9    firefox

Now I want to sort in reverse order, for the result be:
9    firefox
7    vim
2    emacs

How can I sort a file with pairs <Key Value> in reverse order?
