# Edit Distance

Given two words word1 and word2, find the minimum number of steps required to convert word1 to word2. (each operation is counted as 1 step.)

You have the following 3 operations permitted on a word:

a) Insert a character
b) Delete a character
c) Replace a character

1. Replace word1[i - 1] by word2[j - 1] (dp[i][j] = dp[i - 1][j - 1] + 1 (for replacement));
2. Delete word1[i - 1] and word1[0..i - 2] = word2[0..j - 1] (dp[i][j] = dp[i - 1][j] + 1 (for deletion));
3. Insert word2[j - 1] to word1[0..i - 1] and word1[0..i - 1] + word2[j - 1] = word2[0..j - 1] (dp[i][j] = dp[i][j - 1] + 1 (for insertion)).

int minDistance(string word1, string word2) {
int m = word1.length(), n = word2.length();
vector<vector<int> > dp(m + 1, vector<int> (n + 1, 0));
for (int i = 1; i <= m; i++)
dp[i][0] = i;
for (int j = 1; j <= n; j++)
dp[0][j] = j;
for (int i = 1; i <= m; i++) {
for (int j = 1; j <= n; j++) {
if (word1[i - 1] == word2[j - 1])
dp[i][j] = dp[i - 1][j - 1];
else dp[i][j] = min(dp[i - 1][j - 1] + 1, min(dp[i][j - 1] + 1, dp[i - 1][j] + 1));
}
}
return dp[m][n];
}
