You need a loop that runs for every line you want to generate; a loop that runs for the number of characters you want to generate; and a method to generate one of 26 characters.
Why would you pose this question in the advanced forum?

Hi Mark -
There's a good point behind this exchange, which is that the terms beginner, intermediate, and advanced can be quite relative to whoever's posting.
I'd say, for starters, post your questions in JiG Beginners. If the questions appear beyond the average crowd in there, I'm sure the moderator will eventually suggest Intermediate, and so on.
Probably the easiest way to tell, though, is by reading other posts. If they're way over your head, drop down a level.
