Given a 2D grid (G[]) of characters and a word(x), find all occurrences of given word in grid. A word can be matched in all 8 directions at any point. Word is said be found in a direction if all characters match in this direction (not in zig-zag form).

The 8 directions are, Horizontally Left, Horizontally Right, Vertically Up, Vertically down and 4 Diagonal directions.


Input:  G[][] = {"GEEKSFORGEEKS",
        x = "GEEKS"

Output: pattern found at 0, 0
        pattern found at 0, 8
        pattern found at 1, 0

The first line of input contains an integer T denoting the no of test cases. Then T test cases follow.  Each test case contains two space separated integers N and M denoting the size of the grid. Then in the next line are N * M space separated values of the grid. In the next line is the word x.

For each test case in a new line print the space separated sorted indexes of the matrix where after each index there is a ', ' . If there are no such occurences print -1.
