Print Doubly Linked list in Reverse Order
  • Last Updated : 26 Nov, 2019

Given a doubly-linked list of positive integers. The task is to print the given doubly linked list data in reverse order.

Examples:

Input: List = 1 <=> 2 <=>  3 <=>  4 <=>  5
Output: 5  4  3  2  1

Input: 10 <=> 20 <=> 30 <=> 40
Output: 40  30  20  10

Approach:

  • Take a pointer to point to head of the doubly linked list.
  • Now, start traversing through the linked list till the end.
  • After reaching last node, start traversing in backward direction and simultaneously print the node->data.

Below is the implementation of the above approach:

C++




// C++ Program to print doubly 
// linked list in reverse order 
#include <bits/stdc++.h>
using namespace std;
  
// Doubly linked list node
struct Node {
    int data;
    struct Node* next;
    struct Node* prev;
};
  
// Function to print nodes of Doubly 
// Linked List in reverse order 
void reversePrint(struct Node** head_ref)
{
    struct Node* tail = *head_ref;
  
    // Traversing till tail of the linked list
    while (tail->next != NULL) {
        tail = tail->next;
    }
  
    // Traversing linked list from tail
    // and printing the node->data
    while (tail != *head_ref) {
        cout << tail->data << " ";
        tail = tail->prev;
    }
    cout << tail->data << endl;
}
  
/* UTILITY FUNCTIONS */
// Function to insert a node at the 
// beginging of the Doubly Linked List 
void push(struct Node** head_ref, int new_data)
{
    // allocate node 
    struct Node* new_node = (struct Node*)malloc(sizeof(struct Node));
  
    // put in the data 
    new_node->data = new_data;
  
    // since we are adding at the beginning, 
    // prev is always NULL 
    new_node->prev = NULL;
  
    // link the old list off the new node 
    new_node->next = (*head_ref);
  
    // change prev of head node to new node 
    if ((*head_ref) != NULL)
        (*head_ref)->prev = new_node;
  
    // move the head to point to the new node 
    (*head_ref) = new_node;
}
  
// Driver Code
int main()
{
    // Start with the empty list 
    struct Node* head = NULL;
  
    // Let us create a sorted linked list
    // to test the functions 
    // Created linked list will be 10->8->4->2 
    push(&head, 2);
    push(&head, 4);
    push(&head, 8);
    push(&head, 10);
  
    cout << "Linked List elements in reverse order : " << endl;
  
    reversePrint(&head);
  
    return 0;
}
