The C++ list::crend function is used to return the constant reverse iterator (const_reverse_iterator) pointing to the element preceding the first element (reversed past-the-last element) of the list.

C++ crbegin crend

Note: A const_reverse_iterator is an iterator that points to constant value and iterates in backward direction. Increasing a const_reverse_iterator results into moving to the beginning of the list container and decreasing it results into moving to the end of the list container. Along with this, it cannot be used to modify the contents it points to, even if the list element is not itself constant.

Syntax

const_reverse_iterator crend() const noexcept;

Parameters

No parameter is required.

Return Value

A const_reverse_iterator to the reversed past-the-last element of the sequence container.

Time Complexity

Constant i.e, Θ(1)

Example:

In the below example, the list::crend function is used to return the const_reverse_iterator pointing to the element preceding the first element of the list MyList.

#include <iostream>
#include <list>
using namespace std;
 
int main (){
  list<string> MyList{"Alpha","Coding","Skills"};
  list<string>::const_reverse_iterator crit;

  crit = MyList.crend();
  crit--;
  cout<<*crit<<" ";
  crit--;
  cout<<*crit<<" ";
  crit--;
  cout<<*crit<<" ";
  return 0;
}

The output of the above code will be:

Alpha Coding Skills

Example:

Lets see another example where the list called MyList contains integer values and list::crend function is used with list::crbegin function to specify a range including all elements of the list container.

#include <iostream>
#include <list>
using namespace std;
 
int main (){
  list<int> MyList{10, 20, 30, 40, 50};
  list<int>::const_reverse_iterator crit;

  for(crit = MyList.crbegin(); crit != MyList.crend(); ++crit)
    cout<<*crit<<" ";

  return 0;
}

The output of the above code will be:

50 40 30 20 10
