Take the message ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ, dCode offers different modes for letters extraction:
Take 1 of N letters
Example: Taking 1 of 2 letters: A-C-E-G-I-K-M-O-O-O-U-W-Y-
Example: Taking 1 of 3 letters: A--D--G--J--M--P--S--V--Y-
Extract a pattern
Example: The pattern 2,3 means to take 1 letter each 2 and 1 letter each 3: A-C--F-H--K-M--P-R--U-W--Z
Extract by mask (1 = preserved letter, 0 = letter ignored)
Example: Using the binary mask 101: A-CD-FG-IJ-LM-OP-RS-UV-XY
The patterns and masks are repeated until reaching the end of the message.
If needed, start using any letter rather than the first letter.
Example: Taking a letter of 2 (starting at position 1): A-C-E-G-I-K-M-O-O-O-U-W-Y-
Example: Taking a letter of 2 (starting at position 2): -B-D-F-H-J-L-N-P-R-T-V-X-Z
Punctuation may (or may not) be taken into account in characters count.
Although this is not practical, Excel provides functions such as RIGHT() or LEFT() to extract N letters at the beginning or end of words. (dCode is better and recommended)
An acrostic is a poem or message from which certain letters or words can be extracted to give a second meaning to the message.
