Naive Pattern Search Iteration

Naive Pattern Search iterates over each character in a text and then counts the following number of matching characters to find the pattern.

Naive Pattern Search: Python
Lesson 1 of 1
  1. 1
    To search through a text means to iterate through it and check each character based on some criteria. With our naive pattern search, we will: - Iterate through each character of the text. - For e…
  2. 2
    Now that we are looping through both the text and the pattern, we can begin to compare the two to check for matches. For each character of the text, we want to check if the subsequent characters ma…
  3. 3
    You have now built a naive pattern search, congratulations! The algorithm begins by iterating through the text and setting a variable match_count equal to 0. Then, for each index of the text, th…
