# [Leetcode] 820. Short Encoding of Words 解题报告

Given a list of words, we may encode it by writing a reference string S and a list of indexes A.

For example, if the list of words is ["time", "me", "bell"], we can write it as S = "time#bell#" and indexes = [0, 2, 5].

Then for each index, we will recover the word by reading from the reference string from that index until we reach a "#" character.

What is the length of the shortest reference string S possible that encodes the given words?

Example:

Input: words = ["time", "me", "bell"]
Output: 10
Explanation: S = "time#bell#" and indexes = [0, 2, 5].


Note:

1. 1 <= words.length <= 2000.
2. 1 <= words[i].length <= 7.
3. Each word has only lowercase letters.

class Solution {
public:
int minimumLengthEncoding(vector<string>& words) {
unordered_set<string> hash(words.begin(), words.end());
for (string w : hash)
for (int i = 1; i < w.size(); ++i)  // try to erase from the hash set
hash.erase(w.substr(i));
int res = 0;
for (string w : hash) {
res += w.size() + 1;
}
return res;
}
};
