to Reverse String in the C# Track

Test suite


This exercise has changed since this solution was written.

Reverse a string

For example: input: "cool" output: "looc"

Running the tests

To run the tests, run the command dotnet test from within the exercise directory.

Initially, only the first test will be enabled. This is to encourage you to solve the exercise one step at a time. Once you get the first test passing, remove the Skip property from the next test and work on getting that test passing. Once none of the tests are skipped and they are all passing, you can submit your solution using exercism submit ReverseString.cs
