Common Prefix, is a Strings related problem and in this post we will see how we can solve this challenge in C++

Write a function to find the longest common prefix string amongst an array of strings.

Longest common prefix for a pair of strings S1 and S2 is the longest string S which is the prefix of both S1 and S2.

As an example, longest common prefix of "abcdefgh" and "abcefgh" is "abc".

Given the array of strings, you need to find the longest S which is the prefix of ALL the strings in the array.


Given the array as:




"abcefgh" ] The answer would be “a”. sort the array check if the current prefix is there or not make the new lcp

Please check the main.cpp snippet for the solution.
