Given a string
s, the power of the string is the maximum length of a non-empty substring that contains only one unique character.
Return the power of the string.
Input: s = "meetme" Output: 2 Explanation: The substring "ee" is of length 2 with the character 'e' only
Input: s = "abbcccddddeeeeedcba" Output: 5 Explanation: The substring "eeeee" is of length 5 with the character 'e' only.
Input: s = "triplepillooooow" Output: 5
Input: s = "hooraaaaaaaaaaay" Output: 11
Input: s = "tourist" Output: 1
1 <= s.length <= 500
scontains only lowercase English letters.
The solution in Java code
We could look at something like this:
But in cases like
eeeee, we would expect a return of
5, but would instead get
So let’s revisit:
A possible third option would be to do something like this:
