Lists have a .reverse() method which reverses the list elements
in-place, but strings don't because they're immutable.

There's a built-in function reversed() which returns an iterator over an
iterable object, eg a string:

     print reversed("abc")

     for c in reversed("abc"):
         print c

It's all in the documentation.

numpy isn't part of the standard library; you'd need to download and
install it.
