140	Word Break II

Given a string s and a dictionary of words dict,
add spaces in s to construct a sentence where each word is a valid dictionary word.

Return all such possible sentences.

For example, given
s = "catsanddog",
dict = ["cat", "cats", "and", "sand", "dog"].

A solution is ["cats and dog", "cat sand dog"].

Algorithm

If the memory array is not used for optimization to reduce repeated calculations, then the recursive method is no different from brute force, and it will not pass OJ with a high probability. So we have to avoid duplicated counting.

To cache this intermediate result, since we must save s and all of its split strings at the same time, a HashMap can be used to establish the mapping between the two, then in the recursive function, we first detect the current s whether there is a mapping, if so, return directly.

If s is empty, an empty string is returned.
