Leetcode: Stream of Characters

Stream of Characters



Similar Problems:


Implement the StreamChecker class as follows:

StreamChecker(words): Constructor, init the data structure with the given words.
query(letter): returns true if and only if for some k >= 1, the last k characters queried (in order from oldest to newest, including this letter just queried) spell one of the words in the given list.

Example:

StreamChecker streamChecker = new StreamChecker(["cd","f","kl"]); // init the dictionary.
streamChecker.query('a');          // return false
streamChecker.query('b');          // return false
streamChecker.query('c');          // return false
streamChecker.query('d');          // return true, because 'cd' is in the wordlist
streamChecker.query('e');          // return false
streamChecker.query('f');          // return true, because 'f' is in the wordlist
streamChecker.query('g');          // return false
streamChecker.query('h');          // return false
streamChecker.query('i');          // return false
streamChecker.query('j');          // return false
streamChecker.query('k');          // return false
streamChecker.query('l');          // return true, because 'kl' is in the wordlist

Note:

  • 1 <= words.length <= 2000
  • 1 <= words[i].length <= 2000
  • Words will only consist of lowercase English letters.
  • Queries will only consist of lowercase English letters.
  • The number of queries is at most 40000.
