Describe and code an algorithm that returns the first duplicate character in a string?

7 Answers

Simple Python example. Not sure it's most efficient. def findDup(str): match=[] i=1 while (i<len(str) and len(match)==0): for j in range(i): if str[j]==str[i]: match=[j,i] i+=1 return match if __name__ == '__main__': print findDup('asdf') print findDup('asdfasdf') pass

first clarify if it is ASCII or UNICODE string For ASCII, create BOOL checkArray [128] = {false}; walk the string and update the index of checkArray based of the character. for (int index=0;index< strlen(str); index++) { if (checkArray[str[index]] == true) { printf (str[index]); return; } else { checkArray[str[index]] = true; } }

public class FirstDupCharacter { public static void main(String[] args) { System.out.println(findDupCharacter("abcdefghiaklmno")); } private static Character findDupCharacter(final String input) { final Set set = new HashSet(); Character dup = null; for (int i = 0; i < input.length(); i++) { if (set.contains(input.charAt(i))) { dup = input.charAt(i); break; } else { set.add(input.charAt(i)); } } return dup; } }

In a given sorted array of integers remove all the duplicates.

Given a binary tree, how would you set the keys/values of all the nodes and their child pointers to null. No language restriction. Do it iteratively in O(N) time with O(1) space complexity where N is the number of nodes in the tree. Other Details: - Tree is just a regular Binary Tree and doesn't have the BST property. - It is not guaranteed to be balanced. - You may do whatever you want to the tree however, you must ensure that all the nodes in the tree and their left/right pointers are set to null.

I was asked a pretty straight forward brain teaser during my last phone interview, which they said they don't normally do, but because I put that I was a logical problem solver on my resume they couldn't resist the opportunity to. It was the following "There are 20 different socks of two types in a drawer in a completely dark room. What is the minimum number of socks you should grab to ensure you have a matching pair?"
