Given a string S consisting of lowercase Latin Letters. Find the first non-repeating character in S.

Example 1:

Input:
S = hello
Output: h
Explanation: In the given string, the
first character which is non-repeating
is h, as it appears first and there is
no other 'h' in the string.

Input:
S = zxvczbtxyzvy
Output: c

Your Task:
You only need to complete the function nonrepeatingCharacter() that takes string S as a parameter and returns the character. If there is no non-repeating character then return '$' .

Expected Time Complexity: O(N).
Expected Auxiliary Space: O(Number of distinct characters).
Note: N = |S|

Constraints:
1 <= N <= 103
