There is a function signFunc(x) that returns:

• 1 if x is positive.
• -1 if x is negative.
• 0 if x is equal to 0.

You are given an integer array nums. Let product be the product of all values in the array nums.

Return signFunc(product).

Example 1:

Input: nums = [-1,-2,-3,-4,3,2,1]
Output: 1
Explanation: The product of all values in the array is 144, and signFunc(144) = 1


Example 2:

Input: nums = [1,5,0,2,-3]
Output: 0
Explanation: The product of all values in the array is 0, and signFunc(0) = 0


Example 3:

Input: nums = [-1,1,-1,1,-1]
Output: -1
Explanation: The product of all values in the array is -1, and signFunc(-1) = -1


Constraints:

• 1 <= nums.length <= 1000
• -100 <= nums[i] <= 100

## Solution: Sign Only

No need to compute the product, only track the sign changes. Flip the sign when encounter a negative number, return 0 if there is any 0 in the array.

Time complexity: O(n)
Space complexity: O(1)
