Given an n x n matrix .In the given matrix, you have to print the elements of the matrix in the snake pattern.

Examples : 

Input :mat[][] = { {10, 20, 30, 40},
                   {15, 25, 35, 45},
                   {27, 29, 37, 48},
                   {32, 33, 39, 50}};
              
Output : 10 20 30 40 45 35 25 15 27 29
         37 48 50 39 33 32 

Input :mat[][] = { {1, 2, 3},
                   {4, 5, 6},
                   {7, 8, 9}};
Output : 1 2 3 6 5 4 7 8 9

 

Matrix printing

We traverse all rows. For every row, we check if it is even or odd. If even, we print from left to right else print from right to left. 

Javascript




<script>
  
// Javascript program to print
// matrix in snake order
let M = 4;
let N = 4;
  
function print(mat)
{
      
    // Traverse through all rows
    for(let i = 0; i < M; i++) 
    {
          
        // If current row is even, print from
        // left to right
        if (i % 2 == 0) 
        {
            for(let j = 0; j < N; j++)
                document.write(mat[i][j] + " ");
  
        // If current row is odd, print from
        // right to left
        
        else
        {
            for(let j = N - 1; j >= 0; j--)
                document.write(mat[i][j] + " ");
        }
    }
}
  
// Driver code
let mat = [ [ 10, 20, 30, 40 ],
            [ 15, 25, 35, 45 ],
            [ 27, 29, 37, 48 ],
            [ 32, 33, 39, 50 ] ];
  
print(mat);
