Yes, I chose to interpret the problem as described (N characters "in order" with no mention of position) and to interpret the lining up of the positions as merely a typographic choice to make the correspondence more visually obvious.

There certainly are other ways to interpret the problem and I don't even assert that the interpetation that I chose is the most likely to be correct. (:

If my assumption was correct however, then using Algorithm::Diff::LCSidx to compare the pattern against the target string will work, but requires the additional step of checking to see if the contents of the two arrays of indices pointed to by the returned references are equivalent.

That'd work for the examples given, but could fail for a case like "CCCDDFFIII".

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
