I’ve never done any form of coding before and have a few questions about starting.
The reason I’m trying to learn coding is for some ‘Project’ I want to try. In short doing it by hand/eye would be too slow and so I feel in the long run having a knowledge of coding will help more.
Here’s the goal/what I am trying to do:
I have a list of names and want to generate groups/order them into about 13 names each. The catch being the way they are classed (I should say that 13 is only an example number).
The way I want to class/group the names is based upon is that there are no overlaps between the letters and the position of the letter.
Here’s an example:
In terms of the position/numbering, I want you to imagine there’s no spaces between the names like so:
And as you see the first and second names have a clash with ‘L’ at position 2.
So basically what I want is a group of names where there are no overlaps between any letters. So I can’t have a L appearing in the 2nd position more than once.
I’ve tried looking online and have had no luck as I may have seen the solution but it was all code, so I feel like I need and want to learn coding to help me if I do decide to use it again following this.
So my main questions/issues are:
- Is this possible to do?
- If so, which language would I need to learn?
if you need me to clarify anything I will.
Thanks in advance.
