Python Function: Reverse a given bytes object

Python Bytes and Byte Arrays Data Type: Exercise-6 with Solution

Write a Python function to reverse a given bytes object.

Sample Solution:


def reverse_bytes(byte_obj):
    reversed_bytes = byte_obj[::-1]
    return reversed_bytes

def main():
        original_bytes = b"Python Exercises!"
        reversed_result = reverse_bytes(original_bytes)
        print("Original Bytes:", original_bytes)
        print("Reversed Bytes:", reversed_result)
        print("Reversed String:", reversed_result.decode("utf-8"))
    except Exception as e:
        print("An error occurred:", e)

if __name__ == "__main__":


Original Bytes: b'Python Exercises!'
Reversed Bytes: b'!sesicrexE nohtyP'
Reversed String: !sesicrexE nohtyP

In the exercise above, the "reverse_bytes()" function takes a bytes object as input and reverses it using slicing with a step of -1. In the "main()" function, a sample bytes object is provided and the reversed bytes and the reversed string are printed.


Flowchart: Python Function: Reverse a given bytes object.

Previous: Convert hexadecimal string to bytes.
