I confused because its not reversed(), but how?
Hello @codingperson51867872 !
You cannot reverse a generator in any generic way except by casting it to a sequence and creating an iterator from that. Later terms of a generator cannot necessarily be known until the earlier ones have been calculated.
Even worse, you can’t know if your generator will ever hit a StopIteration exception until you hit it, so there’s no way to know what there will even be a first term in your sequence.
The best you could do would be to write a reversed_iterator function:
def reversed_iterator(iter): return reversed(list(iter))
You could also, of course, replace reversed in this with your imap based iterative version, to save one list creation.
Thanks again @trevorhodges!
