This weekend I wrote a word-ladder program (eg sad-fad-fan-fun). I’d done research a couple months ago and it was on the 20 or so Firefox tabs I’d get to some day. But when I finally closed some old ones, the project turned back up. The tabs were more about creating a graph in general. They were too much to take in at first, but I wrote a basic word ladder in PERL and then revisited the links and downloaded the python packages that helped me understand it all more in general.
The link for my perl script is at https://github.com/andrewschultz/miscellany/blob/master/wordfun/wlad.pl for those interested. I think I may use it to help with other programming languages.
