Given a pattern pat and a string array sArr[], the task is to count the number of strings from the array that ends with the given pattern.
Examples: 
 

Input: pat = “ks”, sArr[] = {“geeks”, “geeksforgeeks”, “games”, “unit”} 
Output:
Only string “geeks” and “geeksforgeeks” end with the pattern “ks”.
Input: pat = “abc”, sArr[] = {“abcd”, “abcc”, “aaa”, “bbb”} 
Output:
 

 

Approach: 
 

  • Initialize count = 0 and start traversing the given string array.
  • For every string str, initialize strLen = len(str) and patLen = len(pattern)
    • If patLen > strLen then skips to the next string as the current string cannot end with the given pattern.
    • Else match the string with the pattern starting from the end. If the string matches the pattern then update count = count + 1.
  • Print the count in the end.

Below is the implementation of the above approach: 
 

C++




// C++ implementation of the approach
#include <bits/stdc++.h>
using namespace std;
 
// Function that return true if str
// ends with pat
bool endsWith(string str, string pat)
{
    int patLen = pat.length();
    int strLen = str.length();
 
    // Pattern is larger in length than
    // the string
    if (patLen > strLen)
        return false;
 
    // We match starting from the end while
    // patLen is greater than or equal to 0.
    patLen--;
    strLen--;
    while (patLen >= 0) {
 
        // If at any index str doesn't match
        // with pattern
        if (pat[patLen] != str[strLen])
            return false;
        patLen--;
        strLen--;
    }
 
    // If str ends with the given pattern
    return true;
}
 
// Function to return the count of required
// strings
int countOfStrings(string pat, int n,
                       string sArr[])
{
    int count = 0;
 
    for (int i = 0; i < n; i++)
 
        // If current string ends with
        // the given pattern
        if (endsWith(sArr[i], pat))
            count++;
 
    return count;
}
 
// Driver code
int main()
{
 
    string pat = "ks";
    int n = 4;
    string sArr[] = { "geeks", "geeksforgeeks", "games", "unit" };
 
    cout << countOfStrings(pat, n, sArr);
 
    return 0;
}

        // than the string
        if (patLen > strLen)
            return false;
     
        // We match starting from the end while
        // patLen is greater than or equal to 0.
        patLen--;
        strLen--;
        while (patLen >= 0)
        {
     
            // If at any index str doesn't match
            // with pattern
            if (pat.charAt(patLen) != str.charAt(strLen))
                return false;
            patLen--;
            strLen--;
        }
     
        // If str ends with the given pattern
        return true;
    }
     
    // Function to return the
    // count of required strings
    static int countOfStrings(String pat, int n,
                        String sArr[])
    {
        int count = 0;
        for (int i = 0; i < n; i++)
        {
     
            // If current string ends with
            // the given pattern
            if (endsWith(sArr[i], pat))
                count++;
        }
        return count;
    }
 
    // Driver code
    public static void main(String []args)
    {
        String pat = "ks";
        int n = 4;
        String sArr[] = { "geeks", "geeksforgeeks", "games", "unit" };
        System.out.println(countOfStrings(pat, n, sArr));
