Daily Challenge (98 Part Series)
John keeps a backup of his old personal phone book as a text file. On each line of the file he can find the phone number (formated as
+X-abc-def-ghij where X stands for one or two digits), the corresponding name between
> and the address.
Unfortunately, everything is mixed, things are not always in the same order; parts of lines are cluttered with non-alpha-numeric characters (except inside phone number and name).
Examples of John's phone book lines:
"/+1-541-754-3010 156 Alphand_St. <J Steeve>\n"
" 133, Green, Rd. <E Kustur> NY-56423 ;+1-541-914-3010!\n"
"<Anastasia> +48-421-674-8974 Via Quirinal Roma\n"
Could you help John with a program that, given the lines of his phone book and a phone number returns a string for this number:
"Phone => num, Name => name, Address => adress"
s = "/+1-541-754-3010 156 Alphand_St. <J Steeve>\n 133, Green, Rd. <E Kustur> NY-56423 ;+1-541-914-3010!\n"
phone(s, "1-541-754-3010") should return "Phone => 1-541-754-3010, Name => J Steeve, Address => 156 Alphand St."
It can happen that, for a few phone numbers, there are many people for a phone number -say nb-, then return :
"Error => Too many people: nb"
or it can happen that the number
nb is not in the phone book, in that case return:
"Error => Not found: nb"
