Hey Forum Members!
I came across this fantastic article online about the Knuth-Morris-Pratt (KMP) Algorithm for pattern search. The KMP Algorithm is a powerful technique for efficiently searching for a pattern within a larger text. Understanding this algorithm can significantly improve your string searching skills.
The article I found here provides a detailed explanation of the KMP Algorithm and its implementation in code. It's a must-read for anyone interested in algorithms and data structures.
Here's a snippet of the code from the article that demonstrates how the KMP Algorithm can be implemented in Python:
def compute_lps_array(pattern): length = 0 i = 1 lps =  * len(pattern) while i < len(pattern): if pattern[i] == pattern[length]: length += 1 lps[i] = length i += 1 else: if length != 0: length = lps[length - 1] else: lps[i] = 0 i += 1 return lps def kmp_algorithm(text, pattern): lps = compute_lps_array(pattern) i = 0 j = 0 while i < len(text) and j < len(pattern): if text[i] == pattern[j]: i += 1 j += 1 else: if j != 0: j = lps[j - 1] else: i += 1 if j == len(pattern): return True, i - j else: return False, -1 text = "ABABDABACDABABCABAB" pattern = "ABABCABAB" result, index = kmp_algorithm(text, pattern) if result: print("Pattern found at index:", index) else: print("Pattern not found in the given text.")
