    wat is meant by traversing a matrix

    and also can any one tell me the concept of traversing a "matrix helically"??

    When you traverse something, you walk it. When you traverse helically, you walk in a spiral. Thus, in the case of a matrix, you'd walk something like so:
    Code:
    789
    612
    543
    Start at one, end up at nine.

    Hope is the first step on the road to disappointment.

    wat is meant by traversing a matrix
    well a matrix is usually represented by a two dimensional array....traversing would mean looping through it ie:
    Code:
    #include <stdio.h>
    
    int main()
    {
            int r, c, matrix[6][6];
    
            for (r=0;r<6;r++)
                    for(c=0;c<6;c++)
                            matrix[r][c]=(c+r) % 2;
    
            for (r=0;r<6;r++) {
                    printf("{");
                    for(c=0;c<6;c++)
                            if (c==0)
                                    printf("%d",matrix[r][c]);
                            else
                                    printf("%3d",matrix[r][c]);
                    printf("}\n");
            }
    
            return 0;
    }
    sets up a matrix and displays it.
