How to Reverse a Loop in Python?

Estimated read time 1 min read

In Python, it is not possible to reverse a loop itself, but you can reverse the sequence over which the loop is iterating.

For example, if you have a list my_list and you want to loop over it in reverse order, you can use the reversed() function to get a reverse iterator for the list:

my_list = [1, 2, 3, 4, 5]
for item in reversed(my_list):



In this example, the reversed() function is called with the my_list as its argument, and it returns a reverse iterator that produces the items of the list in reverse order. The for loop then iterates over this reverse iterator and prints each item.
