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

just do it brute force method
1) first create an 2D array with new bounds (that is if row = column, then the new 2D array should have the same number of rows and column, otherwise row is then the new column, and column is then the new row)
2)
next just convert each element into the new array via a for loop
i think this is it
int row = 4;
int column = 4;
int [] [] array = new int [row] [column];
int count = 0;
for (int i = 0 ; i < row ; i++)
for (int j = 0 ; j < column ; j++)
array [i] [j] = count++;
int [] [] newarray = new int [column] [row];
for (int i = 0 ; i < column ; i++)
{
int x = row  1;
for (int j = 0 ; j < row ; j++)
{
newarray [i] [j] = array [x] [i];
}
}
that's a start if its wrong tho.

oops
for (int i = 0 ; i < row ; i++)
for (int j = 0 ; j < column ; j++)
array [i] [j] = count++;
that was just for testing

What if the contents of the matrix is not given. It could change depending on the input. 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.
