Given a linked list, print reverse of it using a recursive function. For example, if the given linked list is 1->2->3->4, then output should be 4->3->2->1.
Note that the question is only about printing the reverse. To reverse the list itself see this 
Difficulty Level: Rookie 
 

reverse-a-link-list

Algorithm: 

printReverse(head)
  1. call print reverse for head->next
  2. print head->data

Implementation: 

C#




// C# program to print reverse
// of a linked list
using System;
 
public class LinkedList
{
    // Head of list
    Node head;
 
    // Linked list Node
    class Node
    {
        public int data;
        public Node next;
        public Node(int d)
        {
            data = d; next = null;
        }
    }
 
    // Function to print reverse
    // of linked list
    void printReverse(Node head)
    {
        if (head == null) return;
 
        // print list of head node
        printReverse(head.next);
 
        // After everything else is printed
        Console.Write(head.data + " ");
    }
 
    // Utility Functions
 
    // Inserts a new Node at front
    // of the list.
    public void push(int new_data)
    {
        /* 1 & 2: Allocate the Node &
                  Put in the data*/
        Node new_node = new Node(new_data);
 
        // 3. Make next of new Node as head
        new_node.next = head;
 
        // 4. Move the head to point to
        // new Node
        head = new_node;
    }
 
    // Driver code
    public static void Main(String []args)
    {
        // Let us create linked list 1->2->3->4
        LinkedList llist = new LinkedList();
        llist.push(4);
        llist.push(3);
        llist.push(2);
        llist.push(1);
 
        llist.printReverse(llist.head);
    }
}

Output: 

4 3 2 1

Time Complexity: O(n)

Space Complexity: O(n) for call stack since using recursion
