String Reverse

JavaScript does not provide a method for reversing a string either as a built-in function or a method associated with the String object. Here is a small routine through which you’ll be able to do it.

The working

This method accepts a string and split the string to an array, reverse the array and join the reversed array into a string. Return that reversed string from the function.

function reverseString(str){
	return str.split('').reverse().join('');

The same thing that we’ve achieved through the above function can be achieved the function furnished below:

function reverseString(str){
	return Array.prototype.reverse.apply(str.split('')).join('');

* Note that all the quotes used in the above mentioned code are single quotes
