TCS Coding Practice Question | Palindrome String

Given a string, the task is to check if this String is Palindrome or not using Command Line Arguments.

Examples:

Input: str = "Geeks"
Output: No

Input: str = "GFG"
Output: Yes

Approach:



  • Since the string is entered as Command line Argument, there is no need for a dedicated input line
  • Extract the input string from the command line argument
  • Traverse through this String character by character using loop, till half the length of the sting
  • Check if the characters from one end match with the characters from the other end
  • If any character do not matches, the String is not Palindrome
  • If all character matches, the String is a Palindrome

// Function to reverse a string
int isPalindrome(char* str)

    int n = strlen(str);
    int i;
  
    // Check if the characters from one end
    // match with the characters
    // from the other end
    for (i = 0; i < n / 2; i++)
        if (str[i] != str[n - i - 1])
  
            // Since characters do not match
            // return 0 which resembles false
            return 0;
  
    // Since all characters match
    // return 1 which resembles true
    return 1;
}
  
// Driver code
int main(int argc, char* argv[])
{
  
    int res = 0;
  
    // Check if the length of args array is 1
    if (argc == 1)
        printf("No command line arguments found.\n");
  
    else {
  
        // Get the command line argument
        // and check if it is Palindrome
        res = isPalindrome(argv[1]);
  
        // Check if res is 0 or 1
        if (res == 0)
            // Print No
            printf("No\n");
        else
            // Print Yes
            printf("Yes\n");
    }
