925. Long Pressed Name

#### QUESTION:

Your friend is typing his name into a keyboard. Sometimes, when typing a character c, the key might get long pressed, and the character will be typed 1 or more times.

You examine the typed characters of the keyboard. Return True if it is possible that it was your friends name, with some characters (possibly none) being long pressed.

Example 1:

Input: name = “alex”, typed = “aaleex” Output: true Explanation: ‘a’ and ‘e’ in ‘alex’ were long pressed. Example 2:

Input: name = “saeed”, typed = “ssaaedd” Output: false Explanation: ‘e’ must have been pressed twice, but it wasn’t in the typed output. Example 3:

Input: name = “leelee”, typed = “lleeelee” Output: true Example 4:

Input: name = “laiden”, typed = “laiden” Output: true Explanation: It’s not necessary to long press any character.

Note:

name.length <= 1000 typed.length <= 1000 The characters of name and typed are lowercase letters.

#### SOLUTION:

``````class Solution {
public boolean isLongPressedName(String name, String typed) {
int index = 0;
for(int i = 0;i<name.length();i++){
if(index>=typed.length()) return false;
if(name.charAt(i)==typed.charAt(index)) {
index++;
continue;
}
while (typed.charAt(index)!=name.charAt(i) && index<typed.length()-1) index++;
if(typed.charAt(index)==name.charAt(i))
index++;
else return false;
}
return true;
}
}
