For the purposes of the current challenge to "outline" a word means to surround it successively with its own letters, starting with the last one, and finally to replace the original word in the center with spaces:
oooooo onnnno on -> on no onnnno oooooo
Given a list of words, consisting only of lowercase and/or uppercase English letters, outline each word and display all the resulting blocks next to each other horizontally, separated by a column of single space, vertically aligned at the centers of the blocks.
You can write a full program, or a function.
A list of words, or if you prefer - a space- or other symbol- delimited string
The ASCII representation of the blocks for the outlined words. Leading/trailing whitespaces are permitted.
Input 1: ["code", "golf"] (or "code golf") Output 1: cccccccccccc gggggggggggg cooooooooooc goooooooooog coddddddddoc gollllllllog codeeeeeedoc golfffffflog code edoc golf flog codeeeeeedoc golfffffflog coddddddddoc gollllllllog cooooooooooc goooooooooog cccccccccccc gggggggggggg Input 2: ["I", "am", "just", "a", "man"] (or "I am just a man") Output 2: jjjjjjjjjjjj juuuuuuuuuuj mmmmmmmmm aaaaaa jussssssssuj maaaaaaam III ammmma justtttttsuj aaa mannnnnam I I am ma just tsuj a a man nam III ammmma justtttttsuj aaa mannnnnam aaaaaa jussssssssuj maaaaaaam juuuuuuuuuuj mmmmmmmmm jjjjjjjjjjjj
The shortest code in bytes in each language wins. I will greatly appreciate if you comment/explain your code and approach.
