#392 – Reversing a String Using the Reverse Method
August 18, 2011 5 Comments
Starting with .NET 3.5, you can use a number of extension methods that are part of the System.Linq namespace to act upon any type that implements IEnumerable<T>. This includes the string type in C# (System.String), which implements IEnumerable<char>.
One of the most useful extension methods that comes with Linq is the Reverse method (Enumerable.Reverse<TSource>). Because this is an extension method, you can use it on an instance of a string as if it were an instance method.
string funnyMan = "Roscoe Arbuckle"; string backwardsGuy = new string(funnyMan.Reverse().ToArray());
