Rotate a matrix by 90 degree without using any extra space | Set 2

Given a square matrix, turn it by 90 degrees in anti-clockwise direction without using any extra space.

Examples:

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

Input:
 1  2  3  4 
 5  6  7  8 
 9 10 11 12 
13 14 15 16 
Output:
 4  8 12 16 
 3  7 11 15 
 2  6 10 14 
 1  5  9 13


An approach that requires extra space is already discussed in below set:
Inplace rotate square matrix by 90 degrees | Set 1

In this post another approach is discussed which is much simpler than the above approach.

There are two steps :

  1. Find transpose of matrix.
  2. Reverse columns of the transpose.

Illustration of above steps :

Let the given matrix be
1  2  3  4
5  6  7  8
9  10 11 12
13 14 15 16

First we find transpose.
1 5 9 13
2 6 10 14
3 7 11 15
4 8 12 16

Then we reverse elements of every column.
4 8 12 16
3 7 11 15
2 6 10 14
1 5  9 13

Below is the implementation of above steps.

Output:

4 8 12 16 
3 7 11 15 
2 6 10 14 
1 5 9 13 

Time complexity :O(R*C)
Space complexity :O(1)

The above steps/program do left (or anticlockwise) rotation, how to right (or clockwise) rotate?
To right rotate, we do following steps.

  1. Find transpose of matrix.
  2. Reverse rows of the transpose.

Illustration of above steps :

Let the given matrix be
1  2  3  4
5  6  7  8
9  10 11 12
13 14 15 16

First we find transpose.
1 5 9 13
2 6 10 14
3 7 11 15
4 8 12 16

Then we reverse elements of every row.
13  9 5 1
14 10 6 2
15 11 7 3 
16 12 8 4
