Contest Brief

We need a small PHP method that receives an array of words and return back a list of possible acronyms that could serve as a brand, project or company name. The list of results should contain both the acronym and the description, where the description should have the respected letters that were used on the acronyms capatilized.

E.g.

getAcronyms(<words>, <minimum-length>, <maximum-length>)

Usage:

array('florida independent contractors', 3, 5);

Result:

FIC - Florida Independent Contractors
FICS - Florida Independent ContractorS
FLIC - FLorida Independent Contractors
FINC - Florida INdependent Contractors
FICO - Florida Independent COntractors
FLINC - FLorida INdependent Contractors
FINCO - Florida INdependent COntractors
FLICS - FLorida Independent ContractorS
etc.
etc.

    There was an error in the example results on the contest description that we've just fixed -- we've also add more examples to reflect what we're looking for.

      Not good, assuming it receives 3 and 5 there should be many more options returned... also we don't see the definition itself. Last but not least, we need to see the code!
