C++ Exercises: Exchange the first and last characters in a given string and return the new string

C++ Basic Algorithm: Exercise-7 with Solution

Write a C++ program to exchange the first and last characters in a given string and return the new string.

Sample Solution:

C++ Code :

#include <iostream>
using namespace std;

string test(string str)
        {
            return str.length() > 1
                ? str.substr(str.length() - 1) + str.substr(1, str.length() - 2) + str.substr(0, 1) : str;
        }
        
int main() 
 {
  cout << test("abcd") << endl;  
  cout << test("a") << endl;  
  cout << test("xy") << endl;  
  return 0;    
}

Sample Output:

dbca
a
yx

Previous: Write a C++ program to remove the character in a given position of a given string. The given position will be in the range 0..string length -1 inclusive.
Next: Write a C++ program to create a new string which is 4 copies of the 2 front characters of a given string. If the given string length is less than 2 return the original string.
