function template
<algorithm>

# std::reverse_copy

```template <class BidirectionalIterator, class OutputIterator>
OutputIterator reverse_copy (BidirectionalIterator first,
BidirectionalIterator last, OutputIterator result);```
Copy range reversed
Copies the elements in the range `[first,last)` to the range beginning at result, but in reverse order.

The behavior of this function template is equivalent to:
 ``1234567891011`` ``````template OutputIterator reverse_copy (BidirectionalIterator first, BidirectionalIterator last, OutputIterator result) { while (first!=last) { --last; *result = *last; ++result; } return result; }``````

### Parameters

first, last
Bidirectional iterators to the initial and final positions of the sequence to be copied. The range used is `[first,last)`, which contains all the elements between first and last, including the element pointed by first but not the element pointed by last.
result
Output iterator to the initial position of the range where the reversed range is stored.
The pointed type shall support being assigned the value of an element in the range `[first,last)`.

The ranges shall not overlap.

### Return value

An output iterator pointing to the end of the copied range, which contains the same elements in reverse order.

### Example

 ``12345678910111213141516171819202122`` ``````// reverse_copy example #include // std::cout #include // std::reverse_copy #include // std::vector int main () { int myints[] ={1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9}; std::vector myvector; myvector.resize(9); // allocate space std::reverse_copy (myints, myints+9, myvector.begin()); // print out content: std::cout << "myvector contains:"; for (std::vector::iterator it=myvector.begin(); it!=myvector.end(); ++it) std::cout << ' ' << *it; std::cout << '\n'; return 0; }``````

Output:
 ```myvector contains: 9 8 7 6 5 4 3 2 1 ```

### Complexity

Linear in the distance between first and last: Performs an assignment for each element.

### Data races

The objects in the range `[first,last)` are accessed.
The objects in the range between result and the returned value are modified.
Each object is accessed exactly once.

### Exceptions

Throws if either an element assignment or an operation on an iterator throws.
Note that invalid arguments cause undefined behavior.
