Takes in an iterator object, such as a list or string, and returns a reversed iterator object.
reversed() function returns an iterator object, in order to access the content, it is necessary to iterate over the object when printing:
counting = ["one", "two", "three"]blast_off = reversed(counting)for num in blast_off:print(num, end=" ")# Output: three two one
To simply reverse an existing list rather than return an iterator object, Python has a
counting = ["one", "two", "three"]blast_off = reversed(counting)print(blast_off) # Output: <list_reverseiterator object at 0x7ff4f6a1dfa0>counting.reverse()print(counting) # Output: ['three', 'two', 'one']
Because strings are also iterator objects,
reversed() can also be used on strings.
new = reversed("stressed")for letter in new:print(letter, end="")# Output: desserts
