Implement a SnapshotArray that supports the following interface:

• SnapshotArray(int length) initializes an array-like data structure with the given length.  Initially, each element equals 0.
• void set(index, val) sets the element at the given index to be equal to val.
• int snap() takes a snapshot of the array and returns the snap_id: the total number of times we called snap() minus 1.
• int get(index, snap_id) returns the value at the given index, at the time we took the snapshot with the given snap_id

Example 1:

Input: ["SnapshotArray","set","snap","set","get"]
[[3],[0,5],[],[0,6],[0,0]]
Output: [null,null,0,null,5]
Explanation:
SnapshotArray snapshotArr = new SnapshotArray(3); // set the length to be 3
snapshotArr.set(0,5);  // Set array[0] = 5
snapshotArr.snap();  // Take a snapshot, return snap_id = 0
snapshotArr.set(0,6);
snapshotArr.get(0,0);  // Get the value of array[0] with snap_id = 0, return 5

Constraints:

• 1 <= length <= 50000
• At most 50000 calls will be made to setsnap, and get.
• 0 <= index < length
• 0 <= snap_id < (the total number of times we call snap())
• 0 <= val <= 10^9

## Solution: map + upper_bound

Use a vector to store maps, one map per element.
The map stores {snap_id -> val}, use upper_bound to find the first version > snap_id and use previous version’s value.

Time complexity:
Set: O(log|snap_id|)
Get: O(log|snap_id|)
Snap: O(1)
Space complexity: O(length + set_calls)
