Transpose of a matrix in C

Matrix transpose

Transpose of a matrix in C language: This C program prints transpose of a matrix. To obtain it, we interchange rows and columns of the matrix. For example, consider the following 3 X 2 matrix:
1 2
3 4
5 6
Transpose of the matrix:
1 3 5
2 4 6
When we transpose a matrix, its order changes, but for a square matrix, it remains the same.

C program to find transpose of a matrix

#include <stdio.h>
int main()
  int m, n, c, d, matrix[10][10], transpose[10][10];
  printf("Enter the number of rows and columns of a matrix\n");
  scanf("%d%d", &m, &n);

  printf("Enter elements of the matrix\n");
  for (c = 0; c < m; c++)
    for (d = 0; d < n; d++)
      scanf("%d", &matrix[c][d]);
  for (c = 0; c < m; c++)
    for (d = 0; d < n; d++)
      transpose[d][c] = matrix[c][d];
  printf("Transpose of the matrix:\n");
  for (c = 0; c < n; c++) {
    for (d = 0; d < m; d++)
      printf("%d\t", transpose[c][d]);

  return 0;
