FUNCTIONS
rhombus, rhombus_letter
Draws a rhombus with letters and returns it as a string.
If no option value is supplied or if it is invalid, then a default will
be silently assumed (omitting all options will return a rhombus of 25
lines).
Given that the specified number of lines is even, it will be incremented
to satisfy the requirement of being an odd number.
Options:
* "lines"
Number of lines to be printed. Defaults to 25.
* "letter"
Letter to start with. Defaults to "a".
* "case"
Lower/upper case of the letters within the rhombus. Defaults to
"upper".
* "fillup"
The fillup character. Defaults to '.'.
* "forward"
Forward letter enumeration. Defaults to boolean 1.
rhombus_digit
Draws a rhombus with digits and returns it as a string.
If no option value is supplied or if it is invalid, then a default will
be silently assumed (omitting all options will return a rhombus of 25
lines).
Given that the specified number of lines is even, it will be incremented
to satisfy the requirement of being an odd number.
Options:
* "lines"
Number of lines to be printed. Defaults to 25.
* "digit"
Digit to start with. Defaults to 0.
* "fillup"
The fillup character. Defaults to '.'.
* "forward"
Forward digit enumeration. Defaults to boolean 1.
rhombus_random
Draws a rhombus with random letters/digits and returns it as a string.
If no option value is supplied or if it is invalid, then a default will
be silently assumed (omitting all options will return a rhombus of 25
lines).
Given that the specified number of lines is even, it will be incremented
to satisfy the requirement of being an odd number.
Options:
* "lines"
Number of lines to be printed. Defaults to 25.
* "fillup"
The fillup character. Defaults to '.'.
