Swap Words inside a String using LINQ

I was working on a piece of code where the name of the person was stored like

“FirstName, LastName”

The requirement was to swap these two words and instead make it look like

“LastName, FirstName”

Here’s how to swap two words using LINQ in .NET 4.0


public static void Main()
string name = "Suprotim, Agarwal";
name = string.Join(", ", name.Split(',').Reverse()).Trim();


Sub Main()
Dim name As String = "Suprotim, Agarwal"
name = String.Join(", ", name.Split(","c).Reverse()).Trim()
End Sub



Will you give this article a +1 ? Thanks in advance
