Given an array
nums, write a function to move all
0's to the end of it while maintaining the relative order of the non-zero elements.
- You must do this in-place without making a copy of the array.
- Minimize the total number of operations.
- Remove Element (Easy)
In-place means we should not be allocating any space for extra array. But we are allowed to modify the existing array. However, as a first step, try coming up with a solution that makes use of additional space. For this problem as well, first apply the idea discussed using an additional array and the in-place solution will pop up eventually.
A two-pointer approach could be helpful here. The idea would be to have one pointer for iterating the array and another pointer that just works on the non-zero elements of the array.
