# Php Program to check if strings are rotations of each other or not

Given a string s1 and a string s2, write a snippet to say whether s2 is a rotation of s1? (eg given s1 = ABCD and s2 = CDAB, return true, given s1 = ABCD, and s2 = ACBD , return false) Algorithm: areRotations(str1, str2)

```    1. Create a temp string and store concatenation of str1 to
str1 in temp.
temp = str1.str1
2. If str2 is a substring of temp then str1 and str2 are
rotations of each other.

Example:
str1 = "ABACD"
str2 = "CDABA"

temp = str1.str1 = "ABACDABACD"
Since str2 is a substring of temp, str1 and str2 are
rotations of each other.```

## PHP

 ` 0) ` `{ ` `        ``return` `true; ` `} ` `else` `{ ` `    ``return` `false; ` `} ` `} ` ` `  `// Driver code ` `\$str1` `= ``"AACD"``; ` `\$str2` `= ``"ACDA"``; ` `if` `(areRotations(``\$str1``, ``\$str2``)) ` `{ ` `    ``echo` `"Strings are rotations "``.  ` `                  ``"of each other"``; ` `} ` `else` `{ ` `    ``echo` `"Strings are not "` `.  ` `         ``"rotations of each other"` `; ` `} ` ` `  `// This code is contributed ` `// by Shivi_Aggarwal. ` `?> `

Output:

`Strings are rotations of each other`

Time Complexity: O(n*n), where n is the length of the string.
Auxiliary Space: O(n)

Library Functions Used: strstr: strstr finds a sub-string within a string. Prototype: char * strstr(const char *s1, const char *s2); See http://www.lix.polytechnique.fr/Labo/Leo.Liberti/public/computing/prog/c/C/MAN/strstr.htm for more details strcat: strncat concatenate two strings Prototype: char *strcat(char *dest, const char *src); See http://www.lix.polytechnique.fr/Labo/Leo.Liberti/public/computing/prog/c/C/MAN/strcat.htm for more details Time Complexity: Time complexity of this problem depends on the implementation of strstr function. If implementation of strstr is done using KMP matcher then complexity of the above program is (-)(n1 + n2) where n1 and n2 are lengths of strings. KMP matcher takes (-)(n) time to find a substring in a string of length n where length of substring is assumed to be smaller than the string.
