Computer Science Canada Rotating 2D Array

 Author: CyCLoBoT [ Tue Nov 25, 2003 4:48 pm ] Post subject: Rotating 2D Array I need help with rotating a 2D array 90 degrees clockwise. This is what i mean: 2D Array (mxm) 01 02 03 04 05 06 07 08 09 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 it will come out as 13 09 05 01 14 10 06 02 15 11 07 03 16 12 08 04 Here's another example where the array is not a square(mxn) 01 02 03 04 05 06 07 08 09 10 11 12 you'd get 09 05 01 10 06 02 11 07 03 12 08 04 Thanks

I'm a little short on time so I can't test it, but from the looks of that code, it wouldn't work. Correct me if I'm wrong. Also, how would one go about solving this recursively? Would it be better do it that way? When I get more time, I'll show you my progress. P.S. Forgive me for bumping a 4 year old thread.
