Given a matrix, the task is to construct a linked list matrix in which each node is connected to its right and down node.
Input: [1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9] Output: 1 -> 2 -> 3 -> NULL | | | v v v 4 -> 5 -> 6 -> NULL | | | v v v 7 -> 8 -> 9 -> NULL | | | v v v NULL NULL NULL
A recursive solution for this problem has been already discussed in this post. Below is an iterative approach for the problem:
- The idea is to create m linked lists (m = number of rows) whose each node stores its right node. The head pointers of each m linked lists are stored in an array of nodes.
- Then, traverse m lists, for every ith and (i+1)th list, set the down pointers of each node of ith list to its corresponding node of (i+1)th list.
Below is the implementation of the above approach:
1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9
Time complexity: O(M * N)
