    Hello, I want to ask a question that I could not solve. How can I ask the user for a word and create a new word that is the same length as the original word
    such that none of the letters of the original word are used? I am supposed to write this program without using an Array or recursion.. Please let me inform.. Regards

    create a new word that is the same length as the original word such that none of the letters of the original word are used
    I have no idea how to solve this. It seems to be mostly an algorithm problem and nothing to do with writing a program in java.
    What is the purpose of solving this problem?

    What ideas do you have so far?

    Break the problem down into the requirements first....create character lengths of equal size - how would you do this? Next, solve the requirement of unique characters (java has a class Set which can be used for this purpose). Your biggest problem, is making sure the result is actually a word
