Given an input string, write a function that returns the Run Length Encoded string for the input string.
For example, if the input string is ‘wwwwaaadexxxxxx’, then the function should return ‘w4a3d1e1x6’.
Input : str = 'wwwwaaadexxxxxx' Output : 'w4a3d1e1x6'
This problem has existing solution please refer Run Length Encoding link. Here we will solve this problem quickly in python using OrderedDict. Approach is very simple, first we create a ordered dictionary which contains characters of input string as key and 0 as their default value, now we run a loop to count frequency of each character and will map it to it’s corresponding key.
