Spiral Matrix

Given the size, return a square matrix of numbers in spiral order.

The matrix should be filled with natural numbers, starting from 1 in the top-left corner, increasing in an inward, clockwise spiral order, like these examples:

Spiral matrix of size 3
1
2
3
1 2 3
8 9 4
7 6 5
Spiral matrix of size 4
1
2
3
4
 1  2  3 4
12 13 14 5
11 16 15 6
10  9  8 7

Running the tests

To run the tests run the command go test from within the exercise directory.

If the test suite contains benchmarks, you can run these with the -bench flag:

1
go test -bench .

Keep in mind that each reviewer will run benchmarks on a different machine, with different specs, so the results from these benchmark tests may vary.
