How to reverse an array

Reversing an array means to display the array in the reversed order. The last element will be on the first position and the first element will be on the last position. Example: 
Array : 1, 2, 3, 4, 5
Reversed array: 5, 4, 3, 2, 1

How to reverse an array in the Go Program

Here we are showing to reverse an array in the Go language. Here variable size holds the size of the array, and other variables Arr holds the elements of the array. A for loop is used to read the elements of the array.

syntax for for loop

for    initializer; condition;   incrementor {

Another variable revArr holds the reversed elements. After that reverse the array as revArr[j] = Arr[i] in a reverse for loop from i = size - 1; i >=0. Finally, print the result array revArr.Given below are the steps which are used in the Go program. 


STEP 1: Import the package fmt

STEP 2: Start function main()

STEP 3: Declare the variable size, i, j

STEP 4: Read the size of the array using fmt.Scanfln()

STEP 5: Declare the arrays variable Arr, revArr

STEP 6: Read the array using for loop

STEP 7: Reverse the array as revArr[j] = Arr[i] in the for loop from  i = size - 1; i >= 0

STEP 8:Print the result array revArr using fmt.Println()


Golang Source Code

                                          package main
import "fmt"

func main() {
    var size, i, j int
    fmt.Print("Enter the array size = ")
    fmt.Scan(& size)
    Arr := make([]int, size)
    revArr := make([]int, size)

    fmt.Print("Enter the array items  = ")
    for i = 0; i < size; i++ {
        fmt.Scan(& Arr[i])
    j = 0
    for i = size - 1; i >= 0; i-- {
        revArr[j] = Arr[i]
    fmt.Println("\nThe reverse array is= ", revArr)


Enter the array size = 4
Enter the array items  = 15 25 35 45

The reverse array is =  [45 35 25 15]
