hmmm, why?

there are a bazillion ways you could do it. Like this for example (not using split, reverse or join):

var split = "my name is kevin".match(/([^\s]+)/g), reversed = ""; while(split.length) reversed += split.pop() + " "; alert(reversed);

why loop in javascript when you can loop in native code?

is this homework?

Its homework.  Wouldn't it be faster to use a loop?
