Sublist in Objective-C
Write a function to determine if a list is a sublist of another list.
exercism fetch objective-c sublist
Given two lists determine if the first list is contained within the second list, if the second list is contained within the first list, if both lists are contained within each other or if none of these are true.
Specifically, a list A is a sublist of list B if by dropping 0 or more elements from the front of B and 0 or more elements from the back of B you get a list that's completely equal to A.
- A = [1, 2, 3], B = [1, 2, 3, 4, 5], A is a sublist of B
- A = [3, 4, 5], B = [1, 2, 3, 4, 5], A is a sublist of B
- A = [3, 4], B = [1, 2, 3, 4, 5], A is a sublist of B
- A = [1, 2, 3], B = [1, 2, 3], A is equal to B
- A = [1, 2, 3, 4, 5], B = [2, 3, 4], A is a superlist of B
- A = [1, 2, 4], B = [1, 2, 3, 4, 5], A is not a superlist of, sublist of or equal to B
There are two different methods of getting set up to run the tests with Objective-C:
- Create an Xcode project with a test target which will run the tests.
- Use the ruby gem
objcas a test runner utility.
Both are described in more detail here: http://exercism.io/languages/objective-c
When submitting an exercise, make sure your solution file is in the same directory as the test code.
The submit command will look something like:
exercism submit <path-to-exercism-workspace>/objective-c/sublist/Sublist.m
You can find the Exercism workspace by running
exercism debug and looking for the line beginning
Submitting Incomplete Solutions
It's possible to submit an incomplete solution so you can see how others have completed the exercise.
