Naming Things

So I was implementing a forEach method and asked my co-worker, "is there a name for a for-loop that iterates backwards? Something like:"

for (let i = myObj.length - 1; i >= 0; i--) { ... }

Of course, there wasn't one. So I set out to create one.

Meet rofEach and the rof loop. It's not only the word "for" backwards, it also means "Reverse Order For".

You're welcome, world. 🎤⬇️

Nomenclature. A burden, lightened somewhat. Thank you.
