Given a string str consisting of lowercase English alphabets. The task is to change each character of the string with the next letter (in a circular fashion) key in the keyboard. For example, ‘a’ gets replaced with ‘s’, ‘b’ gets replaced with ‘n’, ….., ‘l’ gets replaced with ‘z’, ….., ‘m’ gets replaced with ‘q’.
Input: str = “geeks”
Input: str = “plmabc”
Approach: For every lowercase character of the English alphabet, insert the character next to it in the keyboard in an unordered_map. Now traverse the given string character by character, and update every character with the map created earlier.
Below is the implementation of the above approach:
