vector rbegin() and rend() function in C++ STL

  • Difficulty Level : Basic
  • Last Updated : 16 Jul, 2018
  1. vector::rbegin() is a built-in function in C++ STL which returns a reverse iterator pointing to the last element in the container.

    Syntax:

    vector_name.rbegin()

    Parameters: The function does not accept any parameter.

    Return value: The function returns a reverse iterator pointing to the last element in the container.

    Program to demonstrate the vector::rbegin() method:

    Program 1:






    // CPP program to illustrate
    // the vector::rbegin() function
    #include <bits/stdc++.h>
    using namespace std;
      
    int main()
    {
        vector<int> v;
        v.push_back(11);
        v.push_back(12);
        v.push_back(13);
        v.push_back(14);
        v.push_back(15);
      
        // prints all the elements
        cout << "The vector elements in reverse order are:\n";
        for (auto it = v.rbegin(); it != v.rend(); it++)
            cout << *it << " ";
        return 0;
    }
    Output:
    The vector elements in reverse order are:
    15 14 13 12 11
    
  2. vector::rend() is a built-in function in C++ STL which returns a reverse iterator pointing to the theoretical element right before the first element in the array container.

    Syntax:

    vector_name.rend()

    Parameters: The function does not take any parameter.

    Return value: The function returns a reverse iterator pointing to the theoretical element right before the first element in the array container.

    Program to demonstrate the vector::rend() method:

    Program 1:




    // CPP program to illustrate
    // the vector::rend() function
    #include <bits/stdc++.h>
    using namespace std;
      
    int main()
    {
        vector<int> v;
        v.push_back(11);
        v.push_back(12);
        v.push_back(13);
        v.push_back(14);
        v.push_back(15);
      
        cout << "The last element is: " << *v.rbegin();
      
        // prints all the elements
        cout << "\nThe vector elements in reverse order are:\n";
        for (auto it = v.rbegin(); it != v.rend(); it++)
            cout << *it << " ";
        return 0;
    }
    Output:
    The last element is: 15
    The vector elements in reverse order are:
    15 14 13 12 11
