Reverse face in OpenStudio API

Is there a built-in way to reverse a surface in the OpenStudio API? By that I mean I want to do a 180° rotation of the surface's outward normal.

Assuming I have an array of all my guilty surfaces, I just want to achieve the same behavior that I would get by manually right clicking on each in Sketchup and do "Reverse faces".

Yeah, you have to reverse the order of the vertices, like so:

surface.setVertices(OpenStudio::reverse(surface.vertices))
