Problem Description

A message containing letters from A-Z is being encoded to numbers using the following mapping:

``` 'A' -> 1
'B' -> 2
...
'Z' -> 26
```

Given an encoded message A containing digits, determine the total number of ways to decode it modulo 109 + 7.

Problem Constraints

1 <= |A| <= 105

Input Format

The first and the only argument is a string A.

Output Format

Return a single integer denoting the total number of ways to decode it modulo 109 + 7.

Example Input

Input 1:

``` A = "8"
```

Input 2:

``` A = "12"
```

Example Output

Output 1:

``` 1
```

Output 2:

``` 2
```

Example Explanation

Explanation 1:

``` Given encoded message "8", it could be decoded as only "H" (8).
The number of ways decoding "8" is 1.
```

Explanation 2:

``` Given encoded message "12", it could be decoded as "AB" (1, 2) or "L" (12).
The number of ways decoding "12" is 2.
```

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. Hints
