Separate the chocolate


Problem Statement :


Tom and Derpina have a rectangular shaped chocolate bar with chocolates labeled T, D and U. They want to split the bar into exactly two pieces such that:

Tom's piece can not contain any chocolate labeled D and similarly, Derpina's piece can not contain any chocolate labeled T and U can be used by either of the two.
All chocolates in each piece must be connected (two chocolates are connected if they share an edge), i.e. the chocolates should form one connected component
The absolute difference between the number of chocolates in pieces should be at most K
After dividing it into exactly two pieces, in any piece, there should not be 4 adjacent chocolates that form a square, i.e. there should not be a fragment like this:
XX
XX
Input Format

The first line of the input contains 3 integers M, N and K separated by a single space.
M lines follow, each of which contains N characters. Each character is 'T','D' or 'U'.

Constraints

0≤ M, N ≤8
0≤ K ≤ M * N
