Example

The following example shows the usage of std::set::rbegin.

#include <iostream>
#include <set>

int main () {
   int myints[] = {20,40,60,80,100};
   std::set<int> myset (myints,myints+10);

   std::set<int>::reverse_iterator rit;

   std::cout << "myset contains:";
   for (rit = myset.rbegin(); rit != myset.rend(); ++rit)
      std::cout << ' ' << *rit;

   std::cout << '\n';

   return 0;
}

The above program will compile and execute properly.
