Wikipedia demonstrates that at [j.mp/stratwiki]. In Python, we can treat functions as normal variables and this simplifies the implementation of Strategy.

Assume that we are asked to implement an algorithm to check if all characters in a string are unique. For example, the algorithm should return true if we enter the string "dream" because none of the characters is repeated. If we enter the string "pizza", it should return false because the letter "z" exists two times. Note that the repeated characters do not need to be consecutive, and the string ...
