// Brute force string matching - coding hints
// 2020, Dr. Muhammad Al-Hashimi

// to define a string simply assign to var

var txt = "text to search!";
var pattern = "sear";

// access string as a character array

var n = txt.length;
document.write(      // tag output as paragraph
   "<p>First letter in pattern and last letter in text: ", 
   pattern [0], 
   txt [n-1], 

// write next a brute-force string matching function
// insert vars to count: match trials, and comparisons for each trial

// compare to worst-case formula for total comparisons based on n,m
// report results in the course group
