Calculate the values of counters after applying all alternating operations: increase counter by 1; set value of all counters to current maximum.

Programming language:
Spoken language:

You are given N counters, initially set to 0, and you have two possible operations on them:

increase(X)− counter X is increased by 1,max counter− all counters are set to the maximum value of any counter.

A non-empty array A of M integers is given. This array represents consecutive operations:

- if A[K] = X, such that 1 ≤ X ≤ N, then operation K is increase(X),
- if A[K] = N + 1 then operation K is max counter.

For example, given integer N = 5 and array A such that:

the values of the counters after each consecutive operation will be:

The goal is to calculate the value of every counter after all operations.

Assume that the following declarations are given:

struct Results { int * C; int L; // Length of the array };

Write a function:

struct Results solution(int N, int A[], int M);

that, given an integer N and a non-empty array A consisting of M integers, returns a sequence of integers representing the values of the counters.

The sequence should be returned as:

- a structure Results (in C), or
- a vector of integers (in C++), or
- a record Results (in Pascal), or
- an array of integers (in any other programming language).

For example, given:

the function should return [3, 2, 2, 4, 2], as explained above.

Assume that:

- N and M are integers within the range [1..100,000];
- each element of array A is an integer within the range [1..N + 1].

Complexity:

- expected worst-case time complexity is O(N+M);
- expected worst-case space complexity is O(N), beyond input storage (not counting the storage required for input arguments).
