Yeah. We have to track the end position and stop accordingly. A simple fix is to use the '' slot in the hash to hold "end state" data for the trie. Eg:

sub insert { my $trie=shift; my $str=shift; $trie=$trie->{$_}||={} foreach (split //,$str); $trie->{''}= $str; } sub common { my $trie=shift; my $common=""; while (!exists($trie->{''}) and 1==scalar keys %$trie) { my $char=(keys %$trie)[0]; $common.=$char; $trie=$trie->{$char}; } $common; } my %trie; insert(\%trie,$_) foreach qw(a ab abc); print common(\%trie);

Sorry it took so long to reply.

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 or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
