Leetcode - Camelcase Matching Solution

# Leetcode - Camelcase Matching Solution

A query word matches a given pattern if we can insert lowercase letters to the pattern word so that it equals the query. (We may insert each character at any position, and may insert 0 characters.)

Given a list of queries, and a pattern, return an answer list of booleans, where answer[i] is true if and only if queries[i] matches the pattern.

Example 1:

Input: queries = ["FooBar","FooBarTest","FootBall","FrameBuffer","ForceFeedBack"], pattern = "FB"
Output: [true,false,true,true,false]
Explanation:
"FooBar" can be generated like this "F" + "oo" + "B" + "ar".
"FootBall" can be generated like this "F" + "oot" + "B" + "all".
"FrameBuffer" can be generated like this "F" + "rame" + "B" + "uffer".

Example 2:

Input: queries = ["FooBar","FooBarTest","FootBall","FrameBuffer","ForceFeedBack"], pattern = "FoBa"
Output: [true,false,true,false,false]
Explanation:
"FooBar" can be generated like this "Fo" + "o" + "Ba" + "r".
"FootBall" can be generated like this "Fo" + "ot" + "Ba" + "ll".

Example 3:

Input: queries = ["FooBar","FooBarTest","FootBall","FrameBuffer","ForceFeedBack"], pattern = "FoBaT"
Output: [false,true,false,false,false]
Explanation:
"FooBarTest" can be generated like this "Fo" + "o" + "Ba" + "r" + "T" + "est".

Note:

1. 1 <= queries.length <= 100
2. 1 <= queries[i].length <= 100
3. 1 <= pattern.length <= 100
4. All strings consists only of lower and upper case English letters.

## Solution in Python

class Solution:
def camelMatch(self, queries: List[str], pattern: str) -> List[bool]:
for query in queries:
pattern_stack = deque(pattern)
query_stack = deque(query)
while pattern_stack and query_stack:
if pattern_stack == query_stack:
pattern_stack.popleft()
query_stack.popleft()
elif query_stack.islower():
query_stack.popleft()
else:
yield False
break
else:
if pattern_stack or any((i.isupper() for i in query_stack)):
yield False
else:
yield True
