Hello all!

Can someone help with this matrix? it needs to spiral inwards, from bottom right corner, clockwise...

I found this code... and it runs nicely but I need to adapt it in some ways:
- I should be able to provide number of rows and columns
- the grid should start from number 1
- it should start from bottom right corner, clockwise...

I will put the code that works, but not the way I need... can someone at least decipher it for me so I could try to do it??

Thanks

I'm totally confused what on earth you want this to do. When I ran it, it gave me an alert that said:

``````0,1,2
7,8,3
6,5,4
