Problem 88. It dseon't mettar waht oedrr the lrettes in a wrod are.

Created by Cody Team in Community

An internet meme from 2003 (read more here) asserted that readers are relatively insensitive to letter order in words, so long as the first and last letters are unchanged.

Given a string of words s, take each word in turn and reverse the order of letters 2 through n-1, where n is the length of the words. Non-alphabetic characters should remain in place.

So if

 sIn = 'hello'


 sOut = 'hlleo'

And if

 sIn = 'This is the first time I have used MATLAB.'


 sOut = 'Tihs is the fsrit tmie I hvae uesd MALTAB.'
