reverse (STL Samples)

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

template<class BidirectionalIterator> inline 
   void reverse( 
      BidirectionalIterator First, 
      BidirectionalIterator Last 
   )

Note Note

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 algorithm reverses the order of the elements in the range [First, Last).

// Functions:
//    reverse - Reverse the items in a sequence.

   // print content of Tongue_Twister
   cout << "Now try the reversed Tongue Twister:";
   for (it = start; it != end; it++)

Before calling reverse
Try this Tongue Twister: she sells sea shells by the sea shore
After calling reverse
Now try the reversed Tongue Twister: shore sea the by shells sea sells she
