Help with booking algorithm question
You are building a small command-line application to calculate hotel availability for a city. Your application reads in two (2) data files, and outputs its answer to STDOUT.
Your application will read in:
· a list of hotels along with how many rooms each contains (in no particular order)
· a list of bookings that have been made (in no particular order)
Your application will then print the list of all hotels which have availability for check-in and check- out date range, if any.
Do not worry about whether a specific room is available in a hotel for the entire booking period without switching rooms: availability is defined as the hotel having at least one (1) available room for each night of the target stay, regardless of whether it's the same room from day to day.
