Interchange elements of first and last columns in matrix

Given a 4 x 4 matrix, the task is to interchange the elements of first and last columns and show the resulting matrix.

Examples:

Input:
8 9 7 6
4 7 6 5
3 2 1 8
9 9 7 7
Output:
6 9 7 8
5 7 6 4
8 2 1 3
7 9 7 9

Input: 
9 7 5 1
2 3 4 1
5 6 6 5
1 2 3 1
Output: 
1 7 5 9
1 3 4 2
5 6 6 5
1 2 3 1

The approach is very simple, we can simply swap the elements of first and last column of the matrix in order to get the desired matrix as output.

Below is the implementation of the above approach :

void interchangeFirstLast(int m[][n])
    // swapping of element between first
    // and last columns
    for (int i = 0; i < n; i++) {
        int t = m[i][0];
        m[i][0] = m[i][n - 1];
        m[i][n - 1] = t;
    }
}
  
// Driver function
int main()
{
    // input in the array
    int m[n][n] = { { 8, 9, 7, 6 },
                    { 4, 7, 6, 5 },
                    { 3, 2, 1, 8 },
                    { 9, 9, 7, 7 } };
  
    interchangeFirstLast(m);
  
    // printing the interchanged matrix
    for (int i = 0; i < n; i++) {
        for (int j = 0; j < n; j++)
            cout << m[i][j] << " ";
        cout << endl;
    }
}
