If you create an array of struct or class, sorting does not work for

The error from using sort:

    C:\opt\dmd\windows\bin\..\..\src\phobos\std\algorithm.d(3620): Error:
static assert  "Invalid predicate passed to sort: a < b"

The error from using setIntersection:

    C:\opt\dmd\windows\bin\..\..\src\phobos\std\functional.d(191): Error:
static assert  "Bad binary function q{a < b}. You need to use a valid D
expression using symbols a of type S and b of type S."

The code used:

    import std.algorithm;
    import std.stdio;

    struct S {
        string label;

        int opCmp(S s2) {
            if(label < s2.label)
                return -1;
            if(label > s2.label)
                return 1;
            else return 0;

    void main() {
        auto s1 = new S[2];
        auto s2 = new S[2];

        s1[0].label = "fish";
        s1[1].label = "bar";
        s2[0].label = "foo";
        s2[1].label = "fish";

        // Comment out to get setInterseciton error

        foreach(str; setIntersection(s1,s2))
