Project Description

Program that will sort a list

I really want a program that can perform the following functionality:

Function #1:

This can be programmed in anything, php, java, vbasic, delphi. I don't care, just so long as it works.

What I want the software to do is simply allow me to select a text file on my computer, which will contain list, for example:

Apples

Oranges

Lemons

Watermelons

Grapefruit

Nectarines

Grapes

Peaches

This file will contain a list separated by line breaks as above

What I need the software to do is simply sort the list by order of the number of characters in the string.

E.G. the list above should sort to:

Apples

Lemons

Grapes

Oranges

Peaches

Grapefruit

Nectarines

Watermelons

That's it. Doesn't worry me what order words that are of the same number of letters are.

eg:

Apples

Lemons

Grapes

or

Lemons

Apples

Grapes

Doesn't matter. Just so long as the whole list is sorted into order or number of characters in the string.

Note: The string may have spaces in it!

For example:

German Shepherd

Golden Retriever

Bull Terrier

-------

Function #2

Take a list and create a longer list of words that includes hyphens instead of spaces, and also spaces removed.

eg a list like this:

german shepherd

golden retriever

bull terrier

Will turn into:

german shepherd

golden retriever

bull terrier

german-shepherd

golden-retriever

bull-terrier

germanshepherd

goldenretriever

bullterrier
