Given a string containing words, find the longest word that satisfies specific conditions.

Programming language:
Spoken language:

You would like to set a password for a bank account. However, there are three restrictions on the format of the password:

- it has to contain only alphanumerical characters (
a−z,A−Z,0−9);- there should be an even number of letters;
- there should be an odd number of digits.

You are given a string S consisting of N characters. String S can be divided into *words* by splitting it at, and removing, the spaces. The goal is to choose the longest word that is a valid password. You can assume that if there are K spaces in string S then there are exactly K + 1 words.

For example, given "`test 5 a0A pass007 ?xy1`", there are five words and three of them are valid passwords: "`5`", "`a0A`" and "`pass007`". Thus the longest password is "`pass007`" and its length is 7. Note that neither "`test`" nor "`?xy1`" is a valid password, because "`?`" is not an alphanumerical character and "`test`" contains an even number of digits (zero).

Write a function:

int solution(char *S);

that, given a non-empty string S consisting of N characters, returns the length of the longest word from the string that is a valid password. If there is no such word, your function should return −1.

For example, given S = "`test 5 a0A pass007 ?xy1`", your function should return 7, as explained above.

Assume that:

- N is an integer within the range [1..200];
- string S consists only of printable ASCII characters and spaces.

In your solution, focus on ** correctness**. The performance of your solution will not be the focus of the assessment.
