EDIT - Edit Distance Again
As any experienced programmer must know the famous problem of "Edit Distance", however this
problem is considered an “alternating chain” if you have alternately made case sensitive.
"AaAaAbB" "B" "a" "aBaCdEf"
Alternating chains are considered in our problem.
We only have one operation that is permitted in exchange for a lower or upper case Latin letter.
Given a string giving the minimum number of changes to be considered an alternating chain.
A string with no spaces line containing only uppercase and lowercase letters, one for each line of
maximum length 10 ^ 3 until end of file
For each line print the minimum number of changes to the chain is a "chain alternately"
Input: AaAaB ABaa a Output: 0 2 0

be aware of this case :
feeling like a kid.
some tricky test cases:-
the problem description is not clear and why is it even named "Edit Distance Again"?Last edit: 2012-04-17 12:45:39
For those getting WA, note that "exchange" here means "toggle". The only operation allowed is toggling the case of the letters. The resultant string has the same length of the original's.
why WA?? Every test case give me correct answer....
