I think all of you would know the FLAMES game played by school students and teenagers.
Using this game, they predict the relationship between two persons.
F-Friends
L-Love
A-Affection
M-Marriage
E-Enemies
S-Siblings

Fist, you should take the two names:

ABCD
DEFA

The common letters are stroked off(Shown in bold here).
Then the remaining letters are counted. Here it is 4.

Now, the calculation is done as follows

FLAMES
FLA ES
F A ES
A ES
ES
S

So, the relationship is Siblings.

Till counting the number of remaining letters, it is easy. But to get the relationship, the logic is a little complicated.

Lets work it out here.

}
This code counts the number of letters left after striking out the common letters.
@shalini_goel14 • 16 May, 2009 Cool something different to code but does your code takes care of following scenario?

If any of the two names are like following
ABCDA
DEFA

Then in above case, first name has two 'A' s and second name has only one 'A' so do the program should cancel all 3 'A's or should cancel only 2'A's -one from each name?
@enthudrives • 16 May, 2009 no. only 2 'A's will be cancelled.

This code counts the number of letters left after striking out the common letters.
The code currently does not gives the correct output. E.g., consider
Name 1: Pradeep
Name 2: Prad

The output should 3 but the code give output as 2.

The code need small correction for this:
n1[i]=n2[i]='\0';
need to be changed to
 n1[i]=n2[j]='\0';
Also the check
if(n1[i]!='\0')
inside the first for loop is not required (though it does not create and issue).

What if after removing common characters nothing is left-out (e.g., i compare Pradeep with Pradeep)?

-Pradeep

The output should 3 but the code give output as 2.
I get the output as 3 only. Try executing it once again.

i edited
  n1[i]=n2[j]='\0';
Thanks 😀

And if nothing is left out, it will be considered as Friends 😀

Compile the file with above code and run as:
a.exe < input.txt > output.txt [on windows]
a.out < input.txt > output.txt [on linux]

Here,
a.exe or a.out are the executables generated after compilation

input.txt is the file containing two names for which FLAMES need to be calculated, e.g., if the names are Pradeep and Prad, then input.txt will be
Pradeep
Prad

P.S.:
1. The input can be in same line separated by space as
Pradeep Prad
2. The code considers that the maximum length of a name will be 79 characters. To change the maximum length modify the pre-processor directive MAX_NAME_LEN and recompile the code.

output.txt is the output file containing result, for given example output.txt will contain
Friends

-Pradeep
@enthudrives • 17 May, 2009 can u please explain your logic?
@pradeep_agrawal • 17 May, 2009 I have modified the code to make some items self-explanatory. Also added comments to the code.

The main logic to calculating FLAMES based on the calculated number of uncommon characters is written in function "determine_applicable_flames". Let me know if it need more explanation.

Please ckeck my program also in Java for this Flames thing. Any doubts or flaws in this, feel free to speak. 😀
Shalini, i looked into the code, and it looks good to me. Just one correction, the code to remove common characters need some changes.
- Consider names as "Pradeep" and "Pradeep". Here the number of uncommon characters is 0, whereas your code gives number of uncommon characters as 2.
- To correct this, i feel you need to put a break statement inside the 'if' where you are comparing names.


The thing i really liked in the code:
1. Conversion of names to upper case before comparing characters (i validated names against both upper case and lower case but missed to consider this scenario while comparison 😔, i have now updated my code also 😉).
2. Some optimization techniques used in the code while calculating flames type, e.g.,
int index = count % (i);
It's a simple way to determine the flames type to be removed.
3. The use of existing API's.


Below are few items where i feel the code can be improved (all in terms of optimization):
1. While comparing names every time you are doing "name1.toString().toUpperCase().charAt(i)"
Instead you can just convert the name to upper case and store the same so that every time you have to just call charAt(i).
2. Instead of combining the strings and then calculating the count, the count for each name can be separately calculated and then added.
3. The code
for (int i = 0; i < newString.length(); i++) {
    count++;
    if (newString.charAt(i) == '1') {
        count--;
    }
}
can be changed to
for (int i = 0; i < newString.length(); i++) {
    if (newString.charAt(i) == '1') {
        count++;
    }
}
4. The code to calculate flames type is of order n^2 and can be reduced to order n^2.

@shalini_goel14 • 17 May, 2009 Hi Pradeep,

Many thanks for the corrections. 😁

Actually I made this program in very hurry, so could not think of optimized way(Ya ! can make it more optimized 😉) , but coming to your point no 3 in improvements required, I feel your piece of suggested code would give me the count for characters that are 1 though I wanted count of characters thar are not 1. Anyways , for this it would be better if I could count it in "if" block of changing value as 1.

For same name checking, BUG, need to look into it. 😔

Upper case thing, yes you are right I knew it, it can be saved but I just showed my laziness in doing so just for finishing off this code quickly. 😛

Point no 4, I am not clear , you want to say optimization can be done from n[sup]2[/sup] to n[sup]2[/sup] ? 😒

Good to hear suggestions from you. 😀

PS: I have edited my last program accordingly.
Thanks !
@pradeep_agrawal • 18 May, 2009 Ahhh, i too replied in hurry 😉.

When i said

for (int i = 0; i < newString.length(); i++) {
    if (newString.charAt(i) == '1') {
        count++;
    }
}
I actually mean
for (int i = 0; i < newString.length(); i++) {
    if (newString.charAt(i) != '1') {
        count++;
    }
}
But the way you modified have the handling and currently calculating the count is also good.

shalini_goel14
Point no 4, I am not clear , you want to say optimization can be done from n[sup]2[/sup] to n[sup]2[/sup] ? 😒
Here i mean to say that optimization can be done from n^3 to n^2.

@shalini_goel14 • 18 May, 2009

Here i mean to say that optimization can be done from n^3 to n^2.
Can you please explain how you got complexity as n[sup]3[/sup]. According to me, complexity is 2n[sup]2[/sup] ?

Correct me if I have any wrong concept ? 😔
@pradeep_agrawal • 18 May, 2009 Why i said that it's of order n^3 because:
1. The loop "for (int i = flamesArrayList.size(); i > 1; i--)" cause order of n.
2. The inner loop "for (int k = 0; k <= temp && temp < flamesArrayList.size(); k++)" cause another order n, making total complexity as order n^2.
3. The implementation of add/remove function of ArrayList itself is of order n, making total complexity to order n^3.

I am planning to work this out in PHP... 😀
sounds good 😁
those who understand C can also easily understand it, atleast I beleive that 😎
@PraveenKumar Purushothaman • 11 May, 2011 PHP is similar to Unix Shell Programming... It uses echo and stuff... 😀
