Given a linked list, print reverse of it without modifying the list.
Input : 1 2 3 4 5 6 Output : 6 5 4 3 2 1 Input : 12 23 34 45 56 67 78 Output : 78 67 56 45 34 23 12
Given a Linked List, display the linked list in reverse without using recursion, stack or modifications to given list.
Input : 1->2->3->4->5->NULL Output :5->4->3->2->1->NULL Input :10->5->15->20->24->NULL Output :24->20->15->5->10->NULL
Below are different solutions that are now allowed here as we cannot use extra space and modify list.
1) Recursive solution to print reverse a linked list. Requires extra space.
2) Reverse linked list and then print. This requires modifications to original list.
3) A O(n2) solution to print reverse of linked list that first count nodes and then prints k-th node from end.
In this post, an efficient stack based solution is discussed.
1. First insert all the element in stack
2. Print stack till stack is not empty
Note: Instead of inserting data from each node into the stack, insert the node’s address onto the stack. This is because the size of the node’s data will be generally more than the size of the node’s address. Thus the stack would end up requiring more memory if it directly stored the data elements. Also, we cannot insert the node’s data onto the stack if each node contained more than one data member. Hence the simpler and efficient solution would be to simply insert the node’s address.
