Print characters having even frequencies in order of occurrence
• Last Updated : 16 Mar, 2021

Given a string str containing only lowercase characters. The task is to print the characters having an even frequency in the order of their occurrence.
Note: Repeated elements with even frequency are printed as many times they occur in order of their occurrences.
Examples:

Input: str = “geeksforgeeks”
Output: geeksgeeks

‘g’, ‘e’, ‘k’ and ‘s’ are the only characters with even frequencies.
Input: str = “aeroplane”
Output: aeae

Approach: Create a frequency array to store the frequency of each of the character of the given string str. Traverse the string str again and check whether the frequency of that character is even. If yes, then print the character.
Below is the implementation of the above approach:

## C++

 `// C++ implementation of the approach``#include ``using` `namespace` `std;` `#define SIZE 26` `// Function to print the even frequency characters``// in the order of their occurrence``void` `printChar(string str, ``int` `n)``{` `    ``// To store the frequency of each of``    ``// the character of the string``    ``int` `freq[SIZE];` `    ``// Initialize all elements of freq[] to 0``    ``memset``(freq, 0, ``sizeof``(freq));` `    ``// Update the frequency of each character``    ``for` `(``int` `i = 0; i < n; i++)``        ``freq[str[i] - ``'a'``]++;` `    ``// Traverse str character by character``    ``for` `(``int` `i = 0; i < n; i++) {` `        ``// If frequency of current character is even``        ``if` `(freq[str[i] - ``'a'``] % 2 == 0) {``            ``cout << str[i];``        ``}``    ``}``}` `// Driver code``int` `main()``{``    ``string str = ``"geeksforgeeks"``;``    ``int` `n = str.length();``    ``printChar(str, n);` `    ``return` `0;``}`

## Java
