This example will teach us how to output the opposite reading order at the contents of the file sequentially in Python.

Source Code

#! /usr/bin/env python3
# -*- coding: utf-8 -*-

fileName = input("Enter the name of the file with .txt extension: ")
with open(fileName, 'r') as file:
    for line in reversed(list(file)):
        print(line.rstrip())
The content of test1.txt is:
line1
line2
