I am sorry I am not confused just not explaining myself

I will use C++ to create the DOS application (You can Do this). The word
files, .txt files with just a list words that my program will create.
I will ask a series of questions and my program will make the .txt file.
like: -
What letters are in the word list?   abc
Are  they lower-case?  yes
Are they upper case?  Yes
Does it have numbers? No
Does it have Symbols? No
Does it have ASCII Letters ? No
Predefine letter? Yes
Which Letter? 1
What is it? a
The my program will write a .txt file that looks like this

abc
acb
aBC
aCB
abC
acB

Do you understand?

I hope you have understood . And I apoligise for being unclear.

So, is it suitable???
I would like to have fatures like a count down clock that shows time
remaining but not at first. I seek your advice

Steve
