struct node* swap(struct node * head,struct node * tail) { if(tail -> next != NULL) head = swap(head, tail->next); if(head == NULL) return NULL; tail -> next = head -> next; head->next = tail; head = tail -> next; if(head == tail){//End of recursion tail -> next = NULL; return NULL; } return head; } } 1 2 3 4 5 6; head is at 1, tail is at 6 1 6 2 3 4 5; head is at 2, tail is at 5 1 6 2 5 3 4; head is at 3; tail is at 4 1 6 2 5 3 4; head is at 4; tail is at 4 stop here.

Full code:

/*Input the no. of items in list as parameter*/ #include <stdio.h> #include <stdlib.h> struct node{ int data; struct node * next; }; void initialize(struct node** head, int n) { if(n == 0) return; printf("Enter the numbers of the list...\n"); *head = malloc(sizeof(struct node)); //Our initial list now points to a valid memory location which is the start of the list scanf("%d", &((*head)->data)); (*head) -> next = NULL; struct node *trav = *head; //Trav is used to complete the list, keeping head at beginning. int i = 0; while(++i < n) { trav ->next = malloc(sizeof(struct node)); trav = trav -> next; scanf("%d", &trav->data); trav -> next = NULL; } //Nothing to return as *head is updated at beginning } struct node* swap(struct node * head,struct node * tail) { if(tail -> next != NULL) head = swap(head, tail->next); if(head == NULL) return NULL; tail -> next = head -> next; head->next = tail; head = tail -> next; if(head == tail){//End of recursion tail -> next = NULL; return NULL; } return head; } void printlist(struct node *head) { printf("The current list is: \n"); while(head != NULL){ printf("%d\t", head-> data); head = head->next; } printf("\n"); } int main(int argc, char* argv[]) { if(argc < 2) { fprintf(stderr, "Please enter no. of items as parameter...\n"); exit(0); } struct node * list; initialize(&list, atoi(argv[1])); printlist(list); printf("Modifying....\n"); swap(list, list->next); printlist(list); }

I'm using recursion to keep track of the list order. This is not needed if the list is doubly linked and even for a singly linked list can be handled by explicitly copying them to a new list. Recursion makes the code shorter.

arjun sir i m not able to enter inside recursion...hav doubt. m not able to execute below line second time

```
if(tail -> next != NULL)
head = swap(head, tail->next);
```

this line is executed only once and ..and it is false initially bcoz

we know that

`if(tail -> next = NULL)`

now how reach this line again as there is no loop and recursion is also not reached.

What I did is, I copied the values of linked list to an array :D Then I put the values back to linked list as per requirement. Anyway recursion will also cost you space ...array too ...so my argument is clear..

void fun(struct node *root)

{

int a[100];

struct node *t=root->next;

int c=1,i=0,j=0;

while(t!=NULL)

{

a[i]=t->value;

i++;

t=t->next;

}

t=root->next;

c=1;

j=0;

i--;

while(t!=NULL)

{

if(c%2==1)

{

t->value=a[i];

i--;

}

else

{

t->value=a[j];

j++;

}

c++;

t=t->next;

}

}

void fun(struct node *root)

{

int a[100];

struct node *t=root->next;

int c=1,i=0,j=0;

while(t!=NULL)

{

a[i]=t->value;

i++;

t=t->next;

}

t=root->next;

c=1;

j=0;

i--;

while(t!=NULL)

{

if(c%2==1)

{

t->value=a[i];

i--;

}

else

{

t->value=a[j];

j++;

}

c++;

t=t->next;

}

}
