I was confused with KMP algo in the beginning. Found a good tutorial for beginners in W3 Spot. As a bonus, found a tutorial on Rabin-Karp also which cleared my concepts regarding both these pattern searching algorithms. This exercise is similar where we have Rabin-Karp vs KMP. Sharing the articles in case someone wants to clear doubts and understand the difference between them before implementing.

I stumbled upon this old thread and I too refer to this Knuth-Morris-Pratt Algorithm in Python resources it helped me a lot.
