This function reverses the order of the referenced string or string literal. Trailing parentheses are optional for this function.

$MyString = $MyString.reverse() 

$MyString = $MyString.reverse 

$MyString = "man bites dog".reverse() 

The latter gives "god setib nam" not "dog bites man" - it is the order of characters that is reversed, not words within it.
