Solving SearchIng Rotated Sorted Array in Javascript. Please try yourself first to solve the problem and submit your implementation to LeetCode before looking into solution.

Problem Description

Suppose an array sorted in ascending order is rotated at some pivot unknown to you beforehand. (i.e., [0,1,2,4,5,6,7] might become [4,5,6,7,0,1,2]).

  • You are given a target value to search. If found in the array return its index, otherwise return -1.
  • You may assume no duplicate exists in the array.
  • Your algorithm's runtime complexity must be in the order of O(log n).
Example 1:
Input: nums = [4,5,6,7,0,1,2], target = 0
Output: 4

Example 2:
Input: nums = [4,5,6,7,0,1,2], target = 3
Output: -1
