# Problem

https://leetcode.com/problems/reorder-log-files/description/

You have an array of logs.  Each log is a space delimited string of words.

For each log, the first word in each log is an alphanumeric identifier.  Then, either:

• Each word after the identifier will consist only of lowercase letters, or;
• Each word after the identifier will consist only of digits.

We will call these two varieties of logs letter-logs and digit-logs.  It is guaranteed that each log has at least one word after its identifier.

Reorder the logs so that all of the letter-logs come before any digit-log.  The letter-logs are ordered lexicographically ignoring identifier, with the identifier used in case of ties.  The digit-logs should be put in their original order.

Return the final order of the logs.

Example 1:

Input: ["a1 9 2 3 1","g1 act car","zo4 4 7","ab1 off key dog","a8 act zoo"]
Output: ["g1 act car","a8 act zoo","ab1 off key dog","a1 9 2 3 1","zo4 4 7"]


Note:

1. 0 <= logs.length <= 100
2. 3 <= logs[i].length <= 100
3. logs[i] is guaranteed to have an identifier, and a word after the identifier.

# Solution: Partition + Sort

1. partition the array such that all digit logs are after all letter logs
2. sort the letter logs part based on the log content

Time complexity: O(n + aloga)

Space complexity: O(n)
