reverse_copy (STL Samples) 

Illustrates how to use the reverse_copy Standard Template Library (STL) function in Visual C++.


template<class BidirectionalIterator, class OutputIterator> inline
   OutputIterator reverse_copy(
      BidirectionalIterator First,
      BidirectionalIterator Last,
      OutputIterator Result
   )
NoteNote

The class/parameter names in the prototype do not match the version in the header file. Some have been modified to improve readability.

The reverse_copy algorithm reverses the order of the elements in the range [First, Last) and copies the result into a sequence of the same size starting at Result. It returns an iterator positioned immediately after the last new element in the resulting sequence.

// reverse_copy.cpp
// compile with: /EHsc
// Illustrates how to use the reverse_copy function.
//
// Functions:
//    reverse_copy - Reverse a sequence, copy the results to another
//                   same-sized sequence.

Before calling reverse_copy
Try this Tongue Twister: she sells sea shells by the sea shore

After calling reverse_copy
Tongue_Twister: she sells sea shells by the sea shore 

Now try the reversed Tongue Twister: shore sea the by shells sea sells she
