GeneralSo close, but so far away: The frustration of creation Pin

I've been hammering on a parsing problem to compute all possible sequences of characters (aka "viable prefixes") that can result from a grammar rule. Permutation is often ugly and complicated and this is no different.

I'm glad I came off a win here recently with my parsing tutorial i published because I'm trying to use that sense of accomplishment to push through this problem.

The worst part of the problem being that I've got it almost working. Maybe you can relate there. "Almost working" is frustration. "Almost working" is a taunt as much as a challenge. "Almost working" can erode moral quicker than few other programming struggles.

So here I go. Deep breath. *cracks knuckles*

*remembers this same "almost working" issue caught me recently on my last problem and I solved it*
When I was growin' up, I was the smartest kid I knew. Maybe that was just because I didn't know that many kids. All I know is now I feel the opposite.
