NSUBSTR2 - Substrings II

You are given a string T which consists of 40000 lowercase latin letters at most. You are also given some integers A, B and Q. You have to answer Q queries. For i-th query you are given a string Si and you need to output how many times Si appears in T. Immediately after answering the current query you need to add ((A*ans+B) modulo 26+1)-th lowercase symbol of the English alphabet to the end of T where ans is the answer to this query.


The first line of input contains a string T. The next line consists of three integers Q (1<=Q<=40000), A (0<=A<=27) and B (0<=B<=26). The following Q lines contain Q query strings, Si-2 on i-th line. Input will not exceed 600 kb.


Output Q lines. Output the answer to the i-th query on the i-th line output.

The mod is 26, not 27

14507647 is my solution I.D and i challenge you and your online judges, to find mistake in my program. I used Z algorithm by concatenating required string to be searched at very beginning of the original string given in testcase, still getting wrong answer.........very stupid question .....tell me why i am getting wrong answer. i am talking to you "Tooru Ichii"....

Thank you @PetarV , i was a little disappointed so i didn't even read the comments. Seems like pretty easy problem, but it gave me lot of headeaches.

@ ljmocic: As Encho previously said, SPOJ always tests on *all* testcases, then reports the *first* error it found while doing so. As such, it might not be the 14th that's causing your SEGF, it could be any of them.

What is wrong with 14th test case? Always getting segmentation fault on that case.

Encho: 2015-04-05 12:08:39

As far as I know SPOJ doesn't stop grading once you get WA or TL, therefore all these comments "What is test #14, i get WA" are useless. I think there are 14 tests in total, if you're getting WA - then one of them is wrong, not necessarily the 14th.

I am having issue(WrongAnswer) with the 14th test case too...not having a clue where is a problem.

what is 14th test case?
I'm getting WA at that test case and I don't know why.

A and B should not be 0 according to the Input section, but they are 0 in the example.

EDIT: fixed

The time shown by SPOJ is the aggregate time over all test cases. That's why they can be over the time limit for a single test case. What does your code being 'short' have to do with it getting TLE? Sounds like you just have the wrong algorithm.
