reverse_copy

Category: algorithms Component type: function

Prototype

template <class BidirectionalIterator, class OutputIterator>
OutputIterator reverse_copy(BidirectionalIterator first,
                            BidirectionalIterator last,
                            OutputIterator result);

Description

Reverse_copy copies elements from the range [first, last) to the range [result, result + (last - first)) such that the copy is a reverse of the original range. Specifically: for every i such that 0 <= i < (last - first), reverse_copy performs the assignment *(result + (last - first) - i) = *(first + i).

The return value is result + (last - first).

Definition

Defined in the standard header algorithm, and in the nonstandard backward-compatibility header algo.h.

Requirements on types

Preconditions

Complexity

Linear: exactly last - first assignments.

Example

vector<int> V;
V.push_back(0);
V.push_back(1);
V.push_back(2);
copy(V.begin(), V.end(), ostream_iterator<int>(cout, " "));
                // Output: 0 1 2
list<int> L(V.size());
reverse_copy(V.begin(), V.end(), L.begin());
copy(L.begin(), L.end(), ostream_iterator<int>(cout, " "));
                // Output: 2 1 0
