function utf8_strreverse(str: String, len: Number(gssize)): String {
    // Gjs wrapper for g_utf8_strreverse()

Reverses a UTF-8 string. str must be valid UTF-8 encoded text. (Use GLib.utf8_validate on all text before trying to use UTF-8 utility functions with it.)

This function is intended for programmatic uses of reversed strings. It pays no attention to decomposed characters, combining marks, byte order marks, directional indicators (LRM, LRO, etc) and similar characters which might need special handling when reversing a string for display purposes.

Note that unlike GLib.strreverse, this function returns newly-allocated memory, which should be freed with when no longer needed.

Since 2.2


a UTF-8 encoded string


the maximum length of str to use, in bytes. If len < 0, then the string is nul-terminated.


a newly-allocated string which is the reverse of str
