# Find all strings that match specific pattern in a dictionary

Problem:

##### Find all strings that match specific pattern in a dictionary Given a dictionary of words, find all strings that matches the given pattern where every character in the pattern is uniquely mapped to a character in the dictionary.

Example:
Input:
dict = [“abb”, “abc”, “xyz”, “xyy”];
pattern = “foo”
Output: [xyy abb]
Explanation: xyy and abb have same character at index 1 and 2 like the pattern

Input:
dict = [“abb”, “abc”, “xyz”, “xyy”];
pat = “mno”
Output: [abc xyz]
Explanation: abc and xyz have all distinct characters, similar to the pattern

Input:
dict = [“abb”, “abc”, “xyz”, “xyy”];
pattern = “aba”
Output: []
Explanation: Pattern has same character at index 0 and 2. No word in dictionary follows the pattern.

Input:
dict = [“abab”, “aba”, “xyz”, “xyx”];
pattern = “aba”
Output: [aba xyx]
Explanation: aba and xyx have same character at index 0 and 2 like the pattern
