From cppreference.com
< cpp‎ | iterator
Defined in header <iterator>
template <class Iterator>
std::reverse_iterator<Iterator> make_reverse_iterator( Iterator i );
(since C++14)
(until C++17)
template <class Iterator>
constexpr std::reverse_iterator<Iterator> make_reverse_iterator( Iterator i );
(since C++17)

make_reverse_iterator is a convenience function template that constructs a std::reverse_iterator for the given iterator i with the type deduced from the type of the argument.

Contents

[edit] Parameters

i - input iterator to be converted to reverse iterator

[edit] Return value

A std::reverse_iterator constructed from i

[edit] Possible implementation

template< class Iterator >
std::reverse_iterator<Iterator> make_reverse_iterator( Iterator i )
{
    return std::reverse_iterator<Iterator>(i);
}

[edit] Example

#include <iostream>
#include <iterator>
#include <vector>
#include <algorithm>
 
int main() {
    auto v = std::vector<int>{ 1, 3, 10, 8, 22 };
 
    std::sort(v.begin(), v.end());
    std::copy(v.begin(), v.end(), std::ostream_iterator<int>(std::cout, ", "));
 
    std::cout << '\n';
 
    std::copy(
        std::make_reverse_iterator(v.end()), 
        std::make_reverse_iterator(v.begin()),
        std::ostream_iterator<int>(std::cout, ", "));
}

Output:

1, 3, 8, 10, 22, 
22, 10, 8, 3, 1,
