RE: how to reverse a singly linked list recursively?

What I would do is
- Have a function that would count the number of Nodes in the list.
- Have this number in the recursive function
- Have a loop that would move a temporary pointer to the last one in the list

// function call


// function definition

void reversingList(int number,Node *primaryPointer,Node *newPointer,int counter);
    static Node *temp = primaryPointer;
    static Node array[number];

    if ( number == 0 )
         while ((*temp).GetNextNodePtr() != NULL )
             (*temp) = array[counter];
             temp = (*temp).GetNextNodePtr();

// Assigning to a new list
         while ( counter != 0 )
             temp = new Node(array[counter]);
             newPointer = temp;
             newPointer = (*newPointer).GetNextNodePtr();
             counter --;
         (*newPointer).SetNextNodePtr(NULL); // assign last ptr to NULL
    if ( number != 0 )
