We have another interview question today. There are several different ways to approach this task, so it makes for an interesting exercise:

Given three arrays of integers in non-decreasing order, find all integers common to all three arrays. For instance, given arrays [1,5,10,20,40,80], [6,7,10,20,80,100] and [3,4,15,20,30,70,80,120] the two common integers are 20 and 80. If an integer appears multiple times in each of the arrays, it should appear multiple times in the output, so with input arrays [1,5,5,5], [3,4,5,5,10] and [5,5,10,20] the correct output is [5,5].

Your task is to write a program to solve the interview question. When you are finished, you are welcome to read or run a suggested solution, or to post your own solution or discuss the exercise in the comments below.
