This week’s question is brought to you by Stytch!
Given two strings n and m, return true if they are equal when both are entered into text editors. But: a
# means a backspace character (deleting backwards), and a
% means a delete character (deleting forwards).
> equalWithDeletions("a##x", "#a#x") > true // both strings become "x" > equalWithDeletions("fi##f%%%th %%year #time###", "fifth year time") > false // the first string becomes "fart"

I switched to tech from a career in archaeology… because I heard my job would be in ruins.
