"Technical challenge" - with two anxious interviewers staring at you across a table provide code / pseudo code of how to reverse a linked list in five minutes or less with them showing visible frustration if you weren't ready for this. No other questions about C or C++, just do you remember data structures class from 20 years ago which you haven't had reason to use since.

Study up on data structures!

If I had to respond instantaneously, I'd probably have just said something about iterating over the list, pushing the elements onto a stack, then popping them off the stack and building a new list. Any recursive solution to this problem would probably be equivalent to this one unless it did something really weird (the call stack would implicitly be used as the stack that I used explicitly here). However, you could also do this in constant space by just reversing the links themselves.

A typical function without additional memory allocation would be: // Let Arg represent the struct type of node of linked list Arg *reverse(Arg *list){ Arg *new_list = NULL; while (list) { Arg* next = list->next; list->next = new_list; new_list = list; list = next; } return new_list; }
