It is possible to extract multiples items (non-exhaustive list) from a text, document or poem written as an acrostic.
Example: The text : ABC DEFGH I JK,
- Initial letter of a line
Example: With a vertical reading: ALV
- Initial letter of a word
Example: The first letters are ADIJLRVX
- Letters in the middle or words or lines (mesostic)
- Last letters of words or line (telestic)
- First and last letters of words or line (acroleuton).
Generally, the hidden text is a name, a password, a first name, a secret code etc. The default example of dCode is from a psalm from Edgar Allan Poe. Other famous writers such as George Sand and Alfred de Musset have written famous acrostics.
Take one of these techniques and let talent write! This function cannot be automated, computer does not have (yet) any imagination! Come back in a few years for an acrostic generator.
