Different substrings in a string that start and end with given strings

Given a string s and two other strings begin and end, find the number of different substrings in the string which begin and end with the given begin and end strings.

Examples:

Input : s = "geeksforgeeks"
        begin = "geeks"
        end = "for"
Output : 1

Input : s = "vishakha"
        begin = "h"
        end = "a"
Output : 2
Two different sub-strings are "ha" and "hakha".



Approach : Find all occurrences of string begin and string end. Store the index of each string in two different arrays. After that traverse through whole string and add one symbol per iteration to already seen sub-strings and map new strings to some non-negative integers. As the ends and beginnings of strings and different string of equal length are mapped to different numbers (and equal strings are mapped equally), simply count the number of necessary sub-strings of certain length.
