Regular Expression II

Implement regular expression matching with support for '.' and '*'.

'.' Matches any single character.
'*' Matches zero or more of the preceding element.

The matching should cover the entire input string (not partial).

The function prototype should be:

int isMatch(const char *s, const char *p)

Some examples:

isMatch("aa","a") → 0
isMatch("aa","aa") → 1
isMatch("aaa","aa") → 0
isMatch("aa", "a*") → 1
isMatch("aa", ".*") → 1
isMatch("ab", ".*") → 1
isMatch("aab", "c*a*b") → 1

Return 0 / 1 ( 0 for false, 1 for true ) for this problem

NOTE: You only need to implement the given function. Do not read input, instead use the arguments to the function. Do not print the output, instead return values as specified. Still have a doubt? Checkout Sample Codes for more details.
