Computer Science Club Program of the Month

Create a C++ program for the following problem:

Write a program that takes a text string and a target string as input, and outputs whether the target string appears as a subsequence of the text string. The subsequence needs to occur in the same order in both strings, but does not necessarily need to be contiguous in the text string; for example, “bnn” occurs as a subsequence of “banana,” but not of “Annabell.” Both strings must be input exactly as the strings to be used, with nothing artificially separating the characters. You may assume that both strings are nonempty and are of length at most 20.
