Introduction

Arrays can also be seen as a field for a bouncing ball. This of course sounds very vague, so here is an example of an input:

[1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9]
[9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1]
[1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9]

The challenge is to output the bounced arrays. These are made from diagonal patterns which bounce at the edges of the field. This path is pointed upwards. The path for the first bounced array (in which the path is directly bounced off the egde), is:

[1, -, -, -, 5, -, -, -, 9]
[-, 8, -, 6, -, 4, -, 2, -]
[-, -, 3, -, -, -, 7, -, -]

From left to right, this would result in [1, 8, 3, 6, 5, 4, 7, 2, 9]. This is our first bounced array. The path for the second bounced array:

[-, 2, -, -, -, 6, -, -, -]
[9, -, 7, -, 5, -, 3, -, 1]
[-, -, -, 4, -, -, -, 8, -]

This results in [9, 2, 7, 4, 5, 6, 3, 8, 1]. The path for the third bounced array is:

[-, -, 3, -, -, -, 7, -, -]
[-, 8, -, 6, -, 4, -, 2, -]
[1, -, -, -, 5, -, -, -, 9]

This results in [1, 8, 3, 6, 5, 4, 7, 2, 9]. So the three bounced arrays are:

[1, 8, 3, 6, 5, 4, 7, 2, 9]
[9, 2, 7, 4, 5, 6, 3, 8, 1]
[1, 8, 3, 6, 5, 4, 7, 2, 9]

Task

Given at least 1 array containing only non-negative integers, with all the arrays having the same length, output all the bounced arrays.

Test cases

Test case 1:

Input:                       Output:
[1, 2, 3, 4, 5]              [1, 7, 3, 9, 5]
[6, 7, 8, 9, 0]              [6, 2, 8, 4, 0]


Input:                       Output:
[1, 2, 3, 4, 5]              [1, 2, 3, 4, 5]


Input:                       Output:
[0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0]     [0, 9, 0, 9, 0, 9, 0, 100]
[9, 9, 9, 9, 9, 9, 9, 100]   [9, 0, 9, 0, 9, 0, 9, 0]
[0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0]     [0, 9, 0, 9, 0, 9, 0, 100]


Input:                       Output:
[0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5]           [0, 7, 14, 9, 4, 11]
[6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11]         [6, 1, 8, 15, 10, 5]
[12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17]     [12, 7, 2, 9, 16, 11]


Input:                       Output:
[0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0]           [0, 2, 2, 6, 2, 6]
[1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6]           [1, 0, 3, 2, 5, 2]
[2, 2, 2, 2, 2, 2]           [2, 2, 0, 4, 2, 4]
[9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4]           [9, 2, 3, 0, 5, 2]

This is , so the submission with the least amount of bytes wins!

Can you please add a three-array testcase where the last array is different then the first, and a four-array testcase? – ETHproductions Jan 22 at 19:11

I can't find the problem description. Can anyone tell me where it is? – feersum Jan 22 at 19:14
    
Yes. I can't find a description of the task. – feersum Jan 22 at 19:20

@LuisMendo it's the only way to bounce, at line 0 it can't go up more – edc65 Jan 22 at 22:15

Input and output as a list of CJam-style arrays.

Test it here.

Most definitely golfable...

Ruby (2.2.2p95), 124 bytes

This could probably be a lot better. I'll figure out how later!

Outputs in reverse order to the examples. This will break slightly on inputs of more than 100 arrays; hopefully this doesn't make too much difference.

           // Implicit: N = array of input arrays, U = first input array, J = -1, L = 100
           // Let's use the first example. 3 input arrays, each of length 9.
C=2*Nl -2  // Set variable C to 2*N.length - 2. In the example, C is 4.
Nw      }  // Reverse N and map each index Y to:
YoY+Ul)    //  Create the range [Y...U.length+Y).
           //  The first time through (Y=0), we have   [0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8]
£       }  //  Map each item X and index Y to:
X%C        //   Take X mod C.                          [0, 1, 2, 3, 0, 1, 2, 3, 0]
C-X%C      //   Take C - (X mod C).                    [4, 3, 2, 1, 4, 3, 2, 1, 4]
Lm         //   Take the minimum of these and 100.     [0, 1, 2, 1, 0, 1, 2, 1, 0]
Ng         //   Get the array at the resulting index.
gY         //   Get the item at index Y in this array. [1, 8, 3, 6, 5, 4, 2, 7, 9]
·          // Join the result with newlines. I guess this isn't necessary, but it helps with readability.

C=J+Nl)òC±C ®óUl)£NgLmX%CC-X%C)gY} ·

I had implemented these two number functions prior to the challenge:

  • ò - same as o, but returns [X..Y] instead of [X..Y)
  • ó - same as o, but returns [X..X+Y) instead of [X..Y)

But due to a misplaced 0, they were buggy and always returned empty arrays. This has now been fixed.

Python 2, 107 106 108 105 bytes

(Dropped some extra parens) (Wrong starting location (ب_ب) ) (already had a list of that length)

def b(a):
 r,e=len(a)-1,enumerate
 print[[a[abs((i-o-r)%(2*r or 1)-r)][i]for i,_ in e(q)]for o,q in e(a)]

It's legal to have the input as an argument to a function, right? This is my first time submitting my code golf answer.
