class ReverseString
   public static void main(String args[])
      String original, reverse = "";
      Scanner in = new Scanner(;
      System.out.println("Enter a string to reverse");
      original = in.nextLine();
      int length = original.length();
      for ( int i = length - 1 ; i >= 0 ; i-- )
         reverse = reverse + original.charAt(i);
      System.out.println("Reverse of entered string is: "+reverse);
