Suppose we have given a String in which some ranges as specified and we have to place the numbers which is between the given range in the specified place as given in the example:
Input : string x = "1-5, 8, 11-14, 18, 20, 26-29" Output : string y = "1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 8, 11, 12, 13, 14, 18, 20, 26, 27, 28, 29"
Approach: To solve the above problem, we can follow the below approach:
- First we have to split the String into String array. We have to split the String where we found – symbol.
- Now we have String array with the elements. Now we just go to the first index last element i.e. 1 and preceding index first element of the String array i.e. 5 .
- After that by the help of for loop we can add the numbers which is between 1 and 5 and store it in the String variable.
- The above process continue til the length of String array.
NOTE: By the help of Collections and various utility methods we can solve the problem easily but Collections concept is not good option performance wise. If we go through Collections, performance is reduced and time complexity is also increased.There in the below program we explicitly define our own split method and logic.
1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 8, 11, 12, 13, 14, 18, 20, 26, 27, 28, 29
