/*The code aims to print Yes or No if from the given string we can divide the string symmetrically, Entered string is P, A+B = P and A=B Print Yes and if we can't divide the string such A is not equal to B we will delete the characters so that we wilL try to make A equal to B
1. wow - Yes, we have to delete o, then A = B = w; P =A+B
2. lala - Yes A = B = la; P = A+B
3. a - No, since we can divide a string of size 1
4. ab - No, if A=a,B=b; A!=B or viceversa
So, the following code works in such a way , We entering a string which is being entered in WordMap, in this scenario we are entering wow string which is inserted in the WordMap and it works perfectly but as soon it returns res; the control goes inside if(!res) but this shouldn't happen as res is true*/

In the following function IsDoubleString(),if res is true then it shouldn't call IsDoubleString(), I debugged the code but I am unable to understand that once it hit the line returns res; why does the control go inside the if(!res) condition? Shouldn't it be directly returning the res value to the main function?

``````bool IsDoubleString(map<char,int> Word)

bool res = true;
for (auto itr = Word.begin(); itr != Word.end(); ++itr)

break;
