/*************************************************************************
 *  Compilation:  javac LRS.java
 *  Execution:    java LRS < file.txt
 *  Dependencies: StdIn.java
 *  
 *  Reads a text corpus from stdin, replaces all consecutive blocks of
 *  whitespace with a single space, and then computes the longest
 *  repeated substring in that corpus. Suffix sorts the corpus using
 *  the system sort, then finds the longest repeated substring among 
 *  consecutive suffixes in the sorted order.
