151. Reverse Words in a String


Given an input string s, reverse the order of the words.

A word is defined as a sequence of non-space characters. The words in s will be separated by at least one space.

Return a string of the words in reverse order concatenated by a single space.

Note that s may contain leading or trailing spaces or multiple spaces between two words. The returned string should only have a single space separating the words. Do not include any extra spaces.

Example 1:

Input: s = "the sky is blue"
 "blue is sky the"

Example 2:

Input: s = "  hello world  "
 "world hello"
 Your reversed string should not contain leading or trailing spaces.

Example 3:

Input: s = "a good   example"
 "example good a"
 You need to reduce multiple spaces between two words to a single space in the reversed string.


  • 1 <= s.length <= 104

  • s contains English letters (upper-case and lower-case), digits, and spaces ' '.

  • There is at least one word in s.

Follow-up: If the string data type is mutable in your language, can you solve it in-place with O(1) extra space?


func reverseWords(s string) string {
    words := strings.Fields(s)
    res := words[len(words)- 1]

    for i := len(words)-2; i >= 0; i-- {
        res = res + " " + words[i]

    return res
