125. Submission Detail

Given a string, determine if it is a palindrome, considering only alphanumeric characters and ignoring cases.

Note: For the purpose of this problem, we define empty string as valid palindrome.

Example 1:

1
2
Input: "A man, a plan, a canal: Panama"
Output: true

Example 2:
