## 393. UTF-8 Validation

A character in UTF8 can be from **1 to 4 bytes** long, subjected to the following rules:

- For 1-byte character, the first bit is a 0, followed by its unicode code.
- For n-bytes character, the first n-bits are all one's, the n+1 bit is 0, followed by n-1 bytes with most significant 2 bits being 10.

This is how the UTF-8 encoding would work:

```
Char. number range | UTF-8 octet sequence
(hexadecimal) | (binary)
--------------------+---------------------------------------------
0000 0000-0000 007F | 0xxxxxxx
0000 0080-0000 07FF | 110xxxxx 10xxxxxx
0000 0800-0000 FFFF | 1110xxxx 10xxxxxx 10xxxxxx
0001 0000-0010 FFFF | 11110xxx 10xxxxxx 10xxxxxx 10xxxxxx
```

Given an array of integers representing the data, return whether it is a valid utf-8 encoding.

**Note:**

The input is an array of integers. Only the **least significant 8 bits** of each integer is used to store the data. This means each integer represents only 1 byte of data.

**Example 1:**

data = [197, 130, 1], which represents the octet sequence:11000101 10000010 00000001. Returntrue. It is a valid utf-8 encoding for a 2-bytes character followed by a 1-byte character.

**Example 2:**

data = [235, 140, 4], which represented the octet sequence:11101011 10001100 00000100. Returnfalse. The first 3 bits are all one's and the 4th bit is 0 means it is a 3-bytes character. The next byte is a continuation byte which starts with 10 and that's correct. But the second continuation byte does not start with 10, so it is invalid.

## Rust Solution

```
struct Solution;
impl Solution {
fn valid_utf8(data: Vec<i32>) -> bool {
let mut count = 0;
for x in data {
if count == 0 {
if x >> 3 & 0b11111 == 0b11110 {
count += 3;
continue;
}
if x >> 4 & 0b1111 == 0b1110 {
count += 2;
continue;
}
if x >> 5 & 0b111 == 0b110 {
count += 1;
continue;
}
if x >> 7 & 0b1 == 0 {
continue;
}
return false;
} else {
if x >> 6 & 0b11 == 0b10 {
count -= 1;
continue;
}
return false;
}
}
count == 0
}
}
#[test]
fn test() {
let data = vec![197, 130, 1];
assert_eq!(Solution::valid_utf8(data), true);
let data = vec![235, 140, 4];
assert_eq!(Solution::valid_utf8(data), false);
}
```
