Leetcode - Reverse Only Letters Solution

Given a string S, return the "reversed" string where all characters that are not a letter stay in the same place, and all letters reverse their positions.

Example 1:

Input: "ab-cd"
Output: "dc-ba"

Example 2:

Input: "a-bC-dEf-ghIj"
Output: "j-Ih-gfE-dCba"

Example 3:

Input: "Test1ng-Leet=code-Q!"
Output: "Qedo1ct-eeLg=ntse-T!"

Note:

  1. S.length <= 100
  2. 33 <= S[i].ASCIIcode <= 122
  3. S doesn't contain \ or "

Solution in Python

class Solution(object):
    def reverseOnlyLetters(self, S):
        letters = [c for c in S if c.isalpha()]
        ans = []
        for c in S:
            if c.isalpha():
                ans.append(letters.pop())
            else:
                ans.append(c)
        return "".join(ans)
