Modify array by removing characters from their Hexadecimal representations which are present in a given string

Given an array arr[] of size N and a string S, the task is to modify given array by removing all characters from their hexadecimal representations that are present in S and then replacing the equivalent decimal element back into the array.

Examples:

Input: arr[] = {74, 91, 31, 122}, S = “1AB”
Output: {4, 5, 15, 7}
Explanation:  
74 -> (4A)16 -> (4)16 -> 4
91 -> (5B)16 -> (5)16 -> 5
31 -> (1F)16 -> (F)16 -> 15
122 -> (7A)16 -> (7)16 -> 7

Input: arr[] = {1450, 1716, 284, 843}, S = “ABFE3”
Output: {5, 100, 284, 4}

Approach: Follow the steps below to solve the problem:



Below is the implementation of the above approach:

C++




// C++ program for the above approach
#include <bits/stdc++.h>
using namespace std;
 
// Function to convert a decimal number
// to its equivalent hexadecimal number
string decHex(int n)
{
  char alpha[] = { 'A', 'B', 'C', 'D', 'E', 'F' };
  string ans;
  while (n > 0) {
    if (n % 16 < 10) {
      ans += to_string(n % 16);
    }
    else {
      ans += alpha[n % 16 - 10];
    }
    n /= 16;
  }
  reverse(ans.begin(), ans.end());
  return ans;
}
 
// Function to convert hexadecimal number
// to its equavalent decimal number
int hexDec(string convertedHex)
{
 
  // Stores characters with their
  // respective hexadecimal values
  char mp[] = { 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15 };
 
  // Stores answer
  int ans = 0;
  int pos = 0;
 
  // Traverse the string
  reverse(convertedHex.begin(), convertedHex.end());
  for (char ch : convertedHex) {
 
    // If digit
    if (isdigit(ch)) {
      ans += ((int)pow(16, pos)) * (ch - '0');
    }
 
    // If character
    else {
      ans += ((int)pow(16, pos)) * mp[ch - 'A'];
    }
    pos += 1;
  }
  // Return the answer
  return ans;
}
 
// Function to move all the
// alphabets to front
string removeChars(string hexaVal, string S)
{
  set<char> setk;
  for (char ch : S) {
    setk.insert(ch);
  }
  string ans = "";
  for (char ch : hexaVal) {
    if (setk.find(ch) != setk.end()) {
      continue;
    }
    ans += ch;
  }
  return ans;
}
 
// Function to modify each array
// element by removing characters
// from their hexadecimal representation
// which are present in a given string
void convertArr(int arr[], int N, string S)
{
 
  // Traverse the array
  for (int i = 0; i < N; i++) {
 
    // Stores hexadecimal value
    string hexaVal = decHex(arr[i]);
 
    // Remove the characters from hexadecimal
    // representation present in string S
    string convertedHex = removeChars(hexaVal, S);
 
    // Stores decimal value
    int decVal = hexDec(convertedHex);
 
    // Replace array element
    arr[i] = decVal;
  }
 
  // Print the modified array
  for (int i = 0; i < N; i++) {
    cout << arr[i] << " ";
  }
}
 
// Driven Program
int main()
{
  // Given array
  int arr[] = { 74, 91, 31, 122 };
  int N = sizeof(arr) / sizeof(arr[0]);
 
  // Given string
  string S = "1AB";
 
  // Function call to modify
  // array by given operations
  convertArr(arr, N, S);
 
  return 0;
}
