    Thumbs up n dimension spiral matrix

    Let A be an array of (n) elements. Write a procedure which will také this array as input and return a matrix which will be spiral in nature. i.e.

    if A= [1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16] then


    fn(A)= B

    =

    7 8 9 10

    6 1 2 11

    5 4 3 12

    16 15 14 13

    although i could easily handle the problem for a 2 dimension matrix the problem has to be solved in 3 dimension as well as n dimension.

    i'm finding it difficult to visualize the same problem for 3 dimension and then for n dimension.
    can som1 help me?

    thank u

    there are several options for 3-d. You need to get an example of what it would look like in 3-d (you cannot be expected to produce output until that output has been clearly defined).
