I'd suggest if the question is really "how do I reverse an array?", it's
best not to add distracting material which is simply hiding your
question.  The more obvious the question is, the more people will bother
thinking about it.

On the other hand, if you were asking "how do I write this function
better?" then the context would certainly be important.  But I don't
see that question here.

You haven't shown what you expected to work that didn't, so I can't
really answer what you actually said, so I'm reduced to guesswork.
Please show (just) what you think should work and doesn't.  (Or, to
put it another way, the answer to what you just said is "yes, it does
actually work", which I'm guessing isn't going to help you much...)



remembering the outer parenthesis, otherwise you are assigning a scalar.
