Output Yes if one string is a rotated version of the other.
Otherwise output No

APL (28)

Takes input on two lines.

'No' 'Yes'[1+(⊂⍞)∊⌽∘A¨⍳⍴A←⍞]

Explanation:

  • A←⍞: read a line of input and store it in A
  • ⌽∘A¨⍳⍴A: Rotate A by x, for each x in [1..length A]. Gives a list, i.e. estT stTe tTes Test
  • (⊂⍞)∊: read another line of input, and see if it is in this list.
  • 1+: add one to this, giving 1 if the strings were not rotated and 2 if they were
  • 'No' 'Yes'[...]: Select either the first or second element from the list 'No' 'Yes' depending on whether the strings were rotated or not.
  • This value is output automatically.

According to the spec (same string lengths):

Perl, 42 43 chars

$.=pop;$_=(pop)x2;print+(qw'yes no')[!/$./]

If different sized strings are allowed, the solution would be:

$.=(pop)x8;$_=(pop)x9;print+(qw'yes no')[!/$./]

JavaScript doesn't have a canonical host, so this answer is written as a function of two arguments. The score goes up to 60 if we disallow JS 1.7 features (expression closures).

Perl (just a quick fix)

A fix to rubber boots' solution, being a new user that I am I can't comment yet so I'll just post a new answer.

As the mentioned method uses a regular expression constructed from user input, it is possible to perform a small regex injection, as follows:

> perl -le '$.=pop;$_=(pop)x2;print+(qw/yes no/)[!/$./]' anything '.*'
yes

The fix is to use \Q (known also as quotemeta):

> perl -le '$.=pop;$_=(pop)x2;print+(qw/yes no/)[!/\Q$./]' anything '.*'
no

The code itself could be further shortened using 'say' but this is left as an exercise to the reader :)

\$\endgroup\$
  • \$\begingroup\$ Furthermore, instead of print+(qw/yes no/)[ you can probably write print qw(yes no)[ which is two characters shorter. \$\endgroup\$ – Timwi Apr 12 '11 at 22:58

Clojure, 95

The function rotated? simply tests one string against all possible rotations of the other. Brute force.

(defn rotated?
  [a b]
  (let[l (count a)
       b (seq b)]
    (->> a cycle (partition l 1) (take l) (some #{b}))))

I personally don't care where the input strings come from, but if it has to be stdin...

(apply rotated? (.split (read-line) " "))

This would add 38 to character count, if strings were whitespace separated.

(rotated? (read-line) (read-line))

This would add 32 to character count, if strings were newline separated. The function rotated? works with any characters in the strings.
