Reverse Bits

Reverse bits of a given 32 bits unsigned integer.

For example, given input 43261596 (represented in binary as 00000010100101000001111010011100), return 964176192 (represented in binary as 00111001011110000010100101000000).

Follow up: If this function is called many times, how would you optimize it?

uint32_t reverseBits(uint32_t n) {
	uint32_t m = 0;
	for (int i = 0; i < 31; ++i) {
		m |= (n & 0x1);
		m <<= 1;
		n >>= 1;
	return m | (n & 0x1);
You can’t perform that action at this time.
